OUR WORK - CRISIS PREVENTION AND RECOVERY
MORE ABOUT CRISIS PREVENTION AND RECOVERY
Papua New Guinea (PNG) faces high levels of crisis risks, which undermine hard won development gains and hamper equitable human development and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG). The combination of man-made crises such as inequalities and social fragmentation, chronic tribal and ethnic fighting, high levels of gender-based and armed violence, widespread and growing availability of small arms, as well as natural disasters leaves the population highly vulnerable, in particular women, children and young people. Conversely, where development is inequitable, unsustainable, and non-inclusive, the level of crisis risks is exacerbated.
