UN comparative advantage

The UN system played a significant role in the peace building process in Bougainville and in facilitating the transition from conflict to sustainable development. It brought to bear processes and inputs tested in other countries and adapted them to the particular circumstances of Papua New Guinea. This solid track record, and neutral status, gives it a potentially important role to play in future crisis prevention and management occurrences. Through the UN’s presence in most of the world’s crisis regions, it is not only well experienced in helping countries to make the transition from crisis to peaceful and sustainable development but also in helping to identify potential conflicts at an early stage and to provide meaningful assistance to governments to address these issues before they evolve into more a serious crisis.

Proposed UN system support

The UN system will seek to enhance national and sub-national capacities to strengthen relevant institutions and processes and to establish mechanisms to enhance the process of nation building, and to prevent and alleviate conflict in areas where this might occur. This will include conflict and vulnerability research and analysis, sharing of best practices and training in conflict resolution and mediation techniques. The development of a comprehensive Nation Building Strategy will be facilitated to enable the Government to address issues of crisis prevention in all its dimension such as gender based violence, ethnic tensions as well as law and order problems. Selected communities will be supported to develop the necessary skills to effectively apply mediation and arbitration to reduce the level of crisis and violence in their communities and to identify and implement measures to protect vulnerable populations, including women and children that are affected by conflict. The development and support to national and regional networks will assist the civil society and government and to exchange information and best practices for crisis prevention and nation building.

Partnership development

The UN will work closely with the Government (DJAG, the DCD and the DOE), the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat (PIFS), academic institutions and selected civil society organizations (CSOs) as well as with other donors, particularly AusAID through its support to the Law and Justice Programme, and NZAID, in relation to community policing.
