Wealth from extractive industries has the potential to more significantly boost the wellbeing of Papua New Guinea’s citizens. Yet the country’s development could be undermined if resources are not used in economically, socially and environmentally sustainable ways, says a new report by the UN Development Programme.

Over 25 per cent of children are not attending schools, and two out of three women and girls in the country experience gender-based violence. The 2013 Global Human Development Index ranked Papua New Guinea 156 out of 187 countries.
