  • From MDGs to Sustainable Development For All: Lessons from 15 Years of Practice
    Nov 21, 2016

    The quest of the last 15 years to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) taught us that Global Goals can motivate and help sustain leaps in human progress. It also taught us that the specifics matter. In some places, the MDGs became a widely-recognized, consistent and important driver of local progress; in others, the role and impact of the MDGs was more ambiguous.

Since many MDGs have been absorbed into the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), many of the observations and solutions provided could prove useful to the implementation of the SDGs.

  • Equality and participation in public decision making in PNG
    Nov 3, 2016

    This Report considers the first hand accounts of women who contested the 2012 election, a group of media representatives and a group of representatives of political parties. The impediments to the participation and representation of women in public decision making roles in PNG are found across all parts of life in PNG. The Report makes findings and recommendations based on the data collected at the Election Diagnostic Workshop and, using that evidence base, acknowledges the need for a multifaceted response to a complex problem with multiple causes and manifestations.
