UNDP 2019 Human Development Report: Human development in Asia-Pacific region advances dramatically, but unevenly
In Papua New Guinea, a small island developing state with much of its population living along the coast or in remote mountainous areas, the impacts of climate change are increasingly apparent: as rainfall patterns shift and sea levels rise, communities are experiencing more severe droughts, floods, salinity and coastal erosion.
Meet the people working at local level to build the resilience of communities.
Port Moresby, 08 August 2019 – Government is today hosting a forum as part of its efforts to prepare a climate action road map guided by Sustainable Development Goal 13, a Goal highlighting action to address climate change.
UNDP is the UN's global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life.
In Papua New Guinea, UNDP works to improve the state’s ability to deliver public services to its people, and in doing so, plays a vital role in helping to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), raise the standard of living and protect human rights for all Papua New Guineans.
