- Optimising Indigenous Economic Wellbeing – addressing issues, needs and opportunities arising in Māori and indigenous communities leading to increased economic independence and self-determination.
- Healthy and Thriving Indigenous Families – addressing issues, needs and opportunities arising in indigenous families leading to health, successful and thriving indigenous families.
- Enhancing Indigenous Distinctiveness – understanding the distinctive contributions that indigenous communities – people, knowledge, assets, resources – do and may yet make to the world at large. Yielding opportunities for development that may not be sourced from any other community or population.
