Democratic Governance

  • Anti-Corruption for Development Effectiveness

    UNDP’s Anti-Corruption for Development Effectiveness Project supports the implementation of the 2010-2030 National Anti Corruption Strategy in achieving its vision to “establish a self-sustaining system of national integrity in which corruption is eliminate and the principles of honesty and ethical conduct, effective application of the rule of law, fair play and openness and accountability are established and practiced in PNG.”

  • Extractive Industries and Sustainable Human Development

    In order to support the Government of PNG meaningfully in addressing the paradox of plenty, UNDP supports the publication of the 2013 National Human Development Report (NHDR) that looks at the varying degrees of translation of wealth from natural resource extraction into human development (HD) and to identify feasible options for the Government to address the wealth-HD nexus and progressively meet its obligation to provide a decent standard of living to all its citizens.

  • Provincial Capacity Building and Enhancement Programme

    The PCaB is a joint effort through the Government of Papua New Guinea (GoPNG), UNDP and AusAID. It focuses on capacity building in sub-national treasury functions. It builds on the developments of previous PCaB Phase II and from other sub-national capacity building efforts.
