Media Release – The United Nations and the Government Sign the United Nations Development Assistance Framework 2018-2022

“The formulation of this new UNDAF has culminated from a thorough evaluation process undertaken on the existing Framework and a consultative process with the Government stakeholders. The United Nations is applauded for working in collaboration with the Government to now have before us the UNDAF 2018-2022,” said the Hon. Charles Abel, Minister for National Planning and Monitoring. “The key elements of the Sustainable Development Goals – People, Prosperity, Plant, Peace as well as Partnership – are key to the Outcomes of the new UNDAF.

It is a unique approach and one that identifies where the UN is best positioned to contribute effectively over the five-year period. Ultimately building a platform for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. This too is what PNG is endeavouring,” continued Minister Abel.

“The United Nations is committed to working with the Government and the people of Papua New Guinea, together with other development partners, to improve the lives of all people in the country, especially the most marginalized and vulnerable, and to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. The United Nations Development Assistance Framework reflects the shared commitment of the Government of Papua New Guinea and the UN system to maximize our efforts,” said Mr. Roy Trivedy, the United Nations Resident Coordinator in Papua New Guinea.
