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 as the foundation for improving economic and social development.
The GoPNG and the GoA (the Partners) have agreed to enter into a Comprehensive Strategic and Economic Partnership (CSEP) which aims to integrate development cooperation as an enabler of broader economic and strategic objectives, and which will centre on six pillars:
About the Program
- Strong democracies for a stable future;
- Close friends, enduring ties;
- Economic partnership for prosperity;
- Strategic cooperation for security and stability;
- Social and human development;
- Near neighbours, global partners.
The Justice Services and Stability for Development (JSS4D)
program is an Australian Government funded program to support the law and justice sector in PNG.
Aligning with the CSEP, the JSS4D program will contribute to the GoPNG-GoA partnership goal of private sector development and human development in PNG, underpinned by a just, safe and secure society for all.
JSS4D provides targeted assistance to PNG’s law and justice agencies, provincial governments, the Autonomous Region of Bougainville and civil society groups. As endorsed by the GoPNG’s National Coordination Mechanism (NCM), the Design Update refocuses JSS4D into three outcome areas: national, subnational, and common priorities of family and sexual violence (FSV) and anti-corruption.
