Description
In 2008 New Zealand (NZ) changed from a Labour-led to a National-led Government, and this resulted in a shift to Government’s carbon emission mitigation strategy, including the abandonment of the Communities for Climate Protection and the Carbon Neutral Public Service programs. Using deLeon’s (1982) seminal model for program termination, the objective of this research is to determine why NZ’s newly elected Government discontinued these initiatives. This empirical research is investigative and probing, and comprises a series of semi-structured interviews with senior managers responsible for the delivery of the respective program within their organization. The architects of each program are also investigated. In the end, this study finds that while economic constraints and programmatic inefficiencies may have played a contributing role, political ideology is the primary rationale for the termination of the CNPS and the CCP-NZ programs.
