Overview :

Background:

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has had a long and proud history in Papua New Guinea (PNG), working in all areas of development over the last 30 years, since the first UNDP office opened in PNG in 1981. With the support of the Government, and partners and donors, UNDP has forged strong bonds and built successful working relationships in all PNG provinces.

Despite vast natural and mineral wealth, PNG faces many development challenges that impact on the daily lives of the population. In 2013, PNG was ranked 187 on the Human Development Index. It is estimated that 40 per cent of the population lives on less than one dollar per day, with a gross national income per capita of $2,227, that 75 per cent of households depend on subsistence agriculture. Life expectancy is 61.6 years and 25 per cent of children never go to school (21% male, 29% female).

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 Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by raising the standard of living and protect human rights for all Papua New Guineans. UNDP gives practical support to the government"s efforts to become more efficient, effective, equitable and accountable. It attempts to foster greater participation in democratic and civil society and helps the government encourage private sector growth that makes use of the country"s natural resources in a sustainable manner.

UNDP has continually expanded its work in PNG and today focuses on two areas: (1) Democratic Governance for Equitable Development, and (2) Environment, Climate Change and Disaster Risk Management.

Communicating UNDP’s mandate, support activities and results are crucial to enhance the awareness of the Government and the general public of Papua New Guinea, development partners and donors, as well as the global network of UNDP. This will enhance UNDP’s reputation, public perception, credibility and trust, and will provide the basis for resource mobilization.
