The Christchurch Alcohol Action Plan 2017-2021 (CAAP) includes strategies and actions aimed at reducing alcohol harm across Christchurch.

CAAP document cover

The Christchurch Alcohol Action Plan has been developed by three partner agencies - Christchurch City Council, Canterbury District Health Board, and NZ Police, with support from the Safer Christchurch and Healthy Christchurch inter-agency groups.

The CAAP is informed by New Zealand and international evidence, local data, and by what our stakeholders and communities are saying about alcohol-related harm and how best to reduce it.

It has been shaped by a shared vision, values and desired outcomes developed in consultation with the community.

Key objectives

  1. Reduce alcohol-related injury and illness
  2. Reduce the harm caused to children and young people
  3. Reduce hazardous drinking
  4. Shift attitudes away from harmful drinking
