This is the report of an independent country-level evaluation conducted by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Evaluation Office in 2011. The evaluation examines the strategic relevance and positioning of UNDP support and its contributions to development results in Papua New Guinea from 2003 to 2011. At the national level, the period of evaluation coincides with important efforts by the Government of Papua New Guinea. These include Vision 2050, the Papua New Guinea Development Strategic Plan 2010–2030, and five yearly Medium-Term Development Plans. Papua New Guinea has established many institutional arrangements for promoting good governance, has key monitoring and accountability structures in place, and is poised to make economic progress. However, development challenges remain in ensuring that many of the policies, laws and regulations are implemented effectively. Furthermore, the resource boom due to liquefied natural gas and rapid economic expansion has yet to generate a human development focus. The evaluation therefore comes at a critical time when UNDP has an opportunity to further strengthen the contributions it has made during the period being examined.
