About the program
The Government of Papua New Guinea (PNG) has identified law and order, combating corruption and reducing violence against women as national development priorities. PNG’s strategic frameworks prioritise reducing crime and social unrest to achieve the vision of a ‘just, safe and secure society for all’ as the foundation for improving economic and social development.
To meet this goal, the Australian government provides support to strengthen national agencies across the law and justice sector in PNG.
The two key objectives underpinning this support are:
- Safer and more secure communities where people have greater access to better aligned effective legal services and community justice mechanisms; and
- More accountable, legitimate and responsive law and justice agencies contributing to a culture of legal compliance and enforcement.
The Justice Services and Stability for Development Program (JSS4D) supports the PNG Government through targeted assistance to PNG’s law and justice agencies, provincial governments, the Autonomous Region of Bougainville (ARoB) and civil society groups focused around four inter-related outcomes for the sector:
Outcome 1: Community Safety and Security
Outcome 2: Addressing Family and Sexual Violence
Outcome 3: Effective Law and Justice Services
Outcome 4: Anti-Corruption
In Bougainville, the program broadly aligns with these outcome areas but with an increased focus on policing. Please copy paste this link to access the Terms of Reference detailing responsibilities and selection criteria:
