UN comparative advantage

The UN system, through UNDP and UNV has contributed to capacity development of selected provincial governments through support to provincial financial management, in the context of the Government of Papua New Guinea Financial Management Improvement Programme (FMIP), supported by ADB and AusAID. It also played a major role in post-conflict planning and support activities in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville.UNICEF, through focusing support on six provinces has supported lower level governments to institutionalize national policies for children and enabled these Provincial Administrations to draw down increased Government services, resources and partnerships to the community level.

Proposed UN system results

The above will be extended to strengthen provincial management and participation in decision-making through UNDP support to the planning and management of service delivery, in conjunction with the AusAID assisted Provincial Performance Improvement Initiative (PPII). UNDP, with UNICEF and UNV, will also build on the experience gained in the planning and implementation of development activities in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville. The UN system will support the preparation of provincial human development reports and MTDS/MDG monitoring at the provincial level. Through the preparation of Provincial Human Development Reports (PHDRs) for selected provinces the specific development situations of provinces will be analyzed and policy options provided to foster human development which is closely linked to the improvement of basic indicators as outlined in the MDGs. The facilitation of consultative forums will help to increase the participation of civil society and the private sector in decision making at provincial and local levels.

Partnership development

The UN system, particularly UNDP, supports the Department of Finance and provincial governments in conjunction with ADB and AusAID. In the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, continued collaboration with donor partners is envisaged.
