The Common Country Analysis (CCA) 2016 provides an overview of Papua New Guinea’s (PNG’s) development context and considers its social, economic, political and environmental perspectives, against the country’s unique cultural and geographical backdrop. The analysis contributes to the United Nation’s (UN’s) planning of its next Programme 2018-2022. The UN’s programme will articulate the development assistance that the UN will deliver as per its partnership with the Government, in support of the people of PNG and in collaboration with civil society, communities, private sector and other development partners. The planning and programme development are aligned to the Medium Term Development Plan (MTDP) cycle, PNG’s Vision 2050 and the global 2030 Agenda for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It outlines key development risks and opportunities as well as challenges. The CCA’s causal analysis identifies the root causes of select key challenges, maps common issues and concludes with the prioritization of issues that aim to inform the UN’s programming. The analysis is informed by the perspectives of the UN’s core programming principles of Human Rights, Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment; Sustainability; ‘leaving no one behind’; and Accountability.
