Democratic Governance

Papua New Guinea (PNG) has had uninterrupted democratic Government since its independence in 1975, but the country’s governance institutions and processes remain insufficient to be fully responsive to the needs of ordinary Papua New Guineans, and to promote equitable development and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG), in particular for the most excluded and marginalized groups in society.

Our goals

Through the promotion of participation, accountability, transparency and effectiveness at all levels of government and society, UNDP – in close collaboration with its UN sister agencies, funds and programmes – aims to build effective and capable state institutions and processes that can ensure equitable development for all Papua New Guineans.
