The Future We Want29 May 2013
This report details consultations on post-2015 MDGs in Papua New Guinea which were conducted by the UN agencies. The aspirations of the people of PNG, through this Snapshot Report, confirm that there is a strong nexus between human development and the environment in which people live. Aside from national ownership and strong political leadership, national stakeholders have identified a crying need for resources to be made available to tackle development challenges. These encompass the large concept of freedom and enjoyment of a range of rights including the fundamental recognition of women’s rights and the need to address the growing problem of violence against women and girls, stakeholders engagement and participation, economic progress which benefits all and social justice with equity. The building blocks of the MDGs are therefore a clear stepping stone to the next development framework in the post-2015 era and this is confirmed through the consultations held.
