TERMS OF REFERENCE

(Excerpt – full terms of reference available as a separate document)

 

The terms of reference set out the purpose, role and protocols of the Panel.

Panel members abide by the Code of Conduct for members of Auckland Council advisory

panels.

 

Purpose

As one of council’s engagement mechanisms with diverse communities, the demographic

advisory panels provide advice to the governing body and council staff within the remit of the

Auckland Plan on the following areas:

·         Auckland Council’s regional policies, plans and strategies

·         Regional and strategic matters including those that Council-Controlled Organisations deal with any matter of particular interest or concern to diverse communities.

 

Outcomes

The panel’s advice will contribute to improving the outcomes of diverse communities and

social cohesion as set out in the Auckland Plan. The panel will advise through their agreed

strategic agenda and detailed work programme.

 

Strategic agenda and work programme

The panel must develop a work programme and set a strategic agenda for the term. The

agendas should be focused and integrated across the panels for collaborative input into

shared agendas, particularly on the Auckland Plan, the Long-term Plan and annual plans.

The panel should advise on council’s organisational strategies relevant to diverse

communities.

The governing body and council staff should work with the panel for the development of their

strategic agendas and work programme. An appropriate committee will approve the panel’s

work programme and any subsequent major changes to it.

 

Submissions

The panel must not make formal submissions to Auckland Council on council strategies,

policies and plans, for example, the annual plan.

In its advisory role to the council, the panel may have input to submissions made by the

council to external organisations but do not make independent submissions, except as

agreed with the council.

This does not prevent individual members being party to submissions outside their role as

panel members.

 

Review

The form and functioning of the panels may be reviewed prior to or after, the end of the

panel’s term in September 2019.

Review and update of Low Carbon Auckland Delivery of an Auckland Climate Action Plan

 

File No.: CP2018/12661

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       To seek input from the Seniors Advisory Panel into the development of an Auckland Climate Action Plan, addressing both mitigation (emissions reduction) and preparing for the impacts of climate change (adaptation). 

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       In February 2018, the Environment and Community Committee committed Council to leading the development of an integrated climate change action plan, addressing both the rising emissions in the region and the impacts of our changing climate (ENV/2018/11, Attachment A).  Development of the plan is being facilitated by Auckland Council, working with public, private and voluntary sectors and drawing in expertise as appropriate.

3.       The integrated climate action plan will build on learning from Low Carbon Auckland: Auckland’s Energy Resilience and Low Carbon Action Plan (see Attachment B for the most recent update report for the action plan) but will also look to deliver a major step change to address new and emerging national and international priorities (e.g. the Paris Agreement, recommendations of New Zealand’s Climate Adaptation Technical Working Group and New Zealand government’s intention to set a target of net zero emissions by 2050).

4.       The plan will also build on new evidence to inform decision making, such as the NIWA climate projections report for Auckland (Attachment C) and our updated greenhouse gas emissions inventory, both released late last year (see Attachment B).

5.       The impacts of climate change (and associated policies) will affect different sectors, demographics and geographies in different ways.  It is therefore essential that insights from the Council’s Advisory Panels are informing the plan from its inception stage.

6.       Council, through the Chief Sustainability Office are currently early in the process of development of the Auckland Climate Action Plan, building evidence to underpin action development.  Engaging with the Council’s Advisory Panels one of the first steps in understanding priorities at a demographic and sector level to ensure that these are considered throughout.

7.       The Chief Sustainability Office will provide the Advisory Panel with an update on key inputs for the Auckland Climate Action Plan, such as the NIWA climate projections report for Auckland (Attachment C) as well as increasing drivers for action locally, nationally and internationally. 

8.       The Advisory Panel’s thoughts will also be sought on the following key questions:

·        Which climate risks and vulnerabilities have been noticed / are of most concern to you and your communities?

·        What needs to change to deliver a low carbon, resilient Auckland?

·        What are your communities’ future priorities in relation to climate change?

·        What is the best way to engage with Auckland’s senior communities on the Auckland Climate Action Plan?

·        How does the Advisory Panel want to be kept updated?

a)      receive the presentation on the Auckland Climate Action Plan

Kia Whai Whare Tatou Katou: Regional, cross sectoral homelessness plan for Auckland

 

File No.: CP2018/11842

 

  

Te take mō te pūrongo / Purpose of the report

1.       To provide background information to inform the discussion with the Seniors Advisory Panel on the development of the regional, cross-sectoral homelessness plan.

Whakarāpopototanga matua / Executive summary

2.       Auckland Council’s agreed definition of homelessness includes people living without shelter (e.g. rough sleeping or in cars), in temporary accommodation (e.g. emergency and transitional accommodation), sharing temporarily (e.g. couch surfing) and in uninhabitable dwellings (e.g. garages).

3.       In 2017 Auckland Council agreed their position that homelessness should be “rare, brief and non-recurring”, and that their role should be to strengthen levers to “improve, end and prevent” homelessness. This included leading the development of a regional, cross-sectoral plan (ENV/2017/118).

4.       Development of the plan involved collaboration with central government agencies, non-government agencies, philanthropics and other key groups. Research with people at risk and with lived experience of homelessness is underway. It also involved engagement with local boards and advisory panels representing communities who are affected by homelessness.

5.       During the meetings with panels, views will be sought on the experience of homelessness, the causes, and how the plan can address the needs of these communities.

6.       Three workshops with a broader group of stakeholders are planned for August 2018. These workshops will focus on building consensus around the plan and developing the annual action plan. Further engagement will also be undertaken with a range of forums and networks, including Auckland Council advisory panels

 

Ngā tūtohunga / Recommendation/s

That the Seniors Advisory Panel:

a)      provide feedback on the development of the regional, cross sectoral homelessness plan at the July 2018 meeting.

b)      nominate a representative to attend the August engagement events to provide a population specific voice.
