Our Work in Papua New Guinea and the Pacific Islands (English)

Pacific Island countries have substantial natural resources, they are rich in cultural diversity and are rapidly increasing their trade and digital links with global markets. However, Pacific countries face unique development challenges: they are physically detached from major markets, have smallpopulations spread across many islands, they are confronting the worst impacts of climate change, and are some of the most vulnerable countries to natural disasters in the world. We are supporting Pacific Island countries to build on their strengths, while managing their vulnerabilities.
