About UNDP in Papua New Guinea

Who we are?

Development challenges in Papua New Guinea are as diverse and complex as the country itself. To respond to these challenges, UNDP in PNG concentrates its efforts on building the country’s capacity to promote inclusive, pro-poor growth, effective governance, and sustainable and resilient development. We help our partners in identifying relevant solutions to today’s complex, trans-boundary development challenges.

What do we want to accomplish?

Guided by the UNDP’s Country Programme Document for Papua New Guinea 2018-2022, advisory and implementation work focuses on the following areas:

·         Peace: promoting inclusive governance, justice and peace

·         Prosperity: inclusive and sustainable growth

·         Planet: sustainable management of natural resources, biodiversity conservation, strengthened climate and disaster resilience. 

In addition to these areas of focus which reflect country’s developmental priorities, UNDP in emphasizes gender, climate change, social protection and inclusive growth, in all aspects of our work.
