      TCPF: Country gender assessment of the national agriculture and rural development sector in Papua New Guinea
      2016
      2018
      99,000
      Approximately 85 percent of the PNG population live in rural areas and work in agricultural and other rural industries. About 90 percent of land is under customary tenure. The distribution of natural resources among the population is unequal; about three quarters of the land, supporting over half the rural population, is of low quality. Gender inequality remains as a significant development challenge in PNG. The nation?s Medium Term Development Plan recognizes gender inequality as a threat to future development?. As a result of the gender inequality in PNG, women have substantially poorer access to health care services and lower levels of educational attainment and literacy than men; women generally lack access to credit, banking and markets; and gender-based violence is very high. All of these factors pose additional barriers to women?s equal participation in economic activity and political life. Gender equality is central to FAO?s mandate for achieving food security for all by raising levels of nutrition, improving agricultural productivity and natural resource management and improving the lives of rural population. Working towards gender equality will increase the impact of FAO interventions, while at the same time contributing to the achievement of the broader UN goal of human rights and social justice. A country gender assessment/gender analysis of the national agriculture and rural development sector is a requirement by the corporate CPF guidelines and mandated by the FAO?s Policy on Gender Equality. Under the project, an assessment of gender in agricultural sectoral policies, plans, and programmes will be conducted with the aim of identifying policy gaps and priority areas for intervention. Based on the assessment, a set of policy recommendations will be made on how to improve gender equality promotion and mainstreaming in the agricultural and rural development sector. Any best practices will be identified, documented and promoted for future scaling up. The project will also support the Department of Agriculture and Livestock to develop an action plan for capacity development. The gender assessment has the objective to reveal gender disparity in access to critical resources, knowledge, opportunities and markets, which have been shown to contribute to low agricultural productivity and food and nutrition insecurity. It contributes to closing the knowledge gap by compiling existing empirical evidence and investigating the gender gaps in access to resources and opportunities in the agriculture and food sector to inform the country programming process. The anticipated impact of the project will be that gender equality and rural women?s rights are mainstreamed into agricultural sectoral policies, plans and intervention programmes and projects. The expected outcome foreseen is that key government officials are aware of, and actively advocate and mainstream the role of women in agriculture and the empowerment of rural women within their respective institutions? mandate.

      Strengthening the e-agriculture environment and developing ICT-mediated agricultural solutions for Papua New Guinea
      2016
      2018
      300,000
      Agriculture is the mainstay of Papua New Guinea's rural economy with over 85% of its eight million plus people depending on it for their livelihoods. The emerging ICT tools and applications offer promising opportunities for increased communication, information sharing and overall national development. In this context, under the FAO Regional Project on E-Agriculture, FAO, in consultation with the Department of Agriculture and Livestock and other key stakeholders, has initiated the development of a PNG E-agriculture Strategy. In parallel with the strategy development process, the PNG Government has requested FAO to provide technical support for continued capacity development for integration of ICT solutions in agricultural development and for implementation of pilot/demonstration activities to further feed into the strategy development and finalization process. The expected outcome of the project is enhanced capacity for development of sustainable ICT solutions that accelerate achieving national agricultural goals and vision. The TCP will achieve this outcome through two key outputs (i) High priority ICT in agriculture services and solutions designed, developed and implemented and (ii) Capacity building at the national and provincial levels to develop priority e-agriculture solutions and to identify, prioritize, develop and implement and sustain ICT in agriculture services and solutions.

      Food security drought prevention, mitigation, preparedness and early recovery support to PNG
      2016
      2017
      300,000
      The current El Nino event in the Pacific Ocean is affecting Papua New Guinea in the form of drought and frost. The lack of sustained rainfall and the repeated frost event have resulted in the decreased production from food gardens and therefore reduced availability of food. The Government estimates that 2.4 million people are currently affected by drought and frost, from which 1.3 million are severely affected. The major constraints are reduced access to clean drinking water as well as water availability for agriculture activities, reduced food availability and accessibility of food (drastic increase in basic food prices in markets), reduction of meals to 1 per day in the most affected areas and crop losses and increased cases of plant diseases, leading to lack of planting materials. Support needs were identified in the following areas: 1. Overall coordination of food security activities at National and Provincial level 2. Food Security Drought monitoring 3. Planting material for farmers (drought-tolerant crops, early maturing varieties) The objective of this project is to support DAL to prepare and respond to the food security needs, in close collaboration with other actors involved in food security (NARI, FPDA, NGOs, CBOs). The support will target four of the worst affected provinces: Southern Highland, Simbu, Enga and Morobe. Activities will include coordination support, support to the development of a drought monitoring system, provision of planting & smart irrigation materials as well as dissemination of food security drought adaptation messaging to farmers. This will be done in such a way as to reach, and be used by, those communities who are highly impacted by the drought and are in a position to adopt and make best use of information and practices that are shared. The project will achieve this by working with relevant line ministries, national organizations, regional partners, and directly with subsistence farming households in the most affected province of Simbu, Enga, SHP and Morobe to: 1. Strengthen the institutional capacities to coordinate food security drought preparedness and early recovery 2. Support institutional capacities to develop and supervise a food security drought monitoring system 3. Support the dissemination of food security drought adaptation good practices among subsistence farming communities, in collaboration with NGOs, CBO, NARI and FPDA support; 4. Support early recovery activities through the multiplication and dissemination of early maturing sweet potato, Irish potato and cassava planting materials as well as purchase and distribution of early maturing beans, pumpkin and open pollinated corn seeds and smart irrigation materials (drip irrigation hose).

      Development of an Action Plan to facilitate Implementation of the National Food Security Policy
      2016
      2017
      200,000
      Food security remains a crucial yet poorly defined issue on PNG?s development agenda. In terms of food security for PNG, the agriculture sector has special importance because it continues to be the main source of food, employment and income for over 85 percent of the population, who mainly live in rural areas. FAO has assisted the Government of Papua New Guinea, specifically the Department of Agriculture and Livestock, in formulating a new National Food Security Policy Framework for the period (NFSP), 2016-2025. The new Food Security Policy will provide the framework for strengthened food and nutrition security in PNG going forward, together with the new Nutrition and Food Safety Policies, once they are adopted. Earlier frameworks did not get implemented, primarily due to a lack of a detailed implementation plan with allocated responsibilities and a monitoring framework. This TCP supports the development of a concrete, budgeted action plan which will enable the central government to roll out the new national food security policy framework to relevant sectoral agencies and local governments, as a follow-up to the policy formulation phase.
