The Autonomous Region of Bougainville is a top priority for the United Nations, according to the organisation’s resident coordinator in PNG, David Mac.
Mr Mac told a reconciliation ceremony in Arawa on Wednesday that UNDP and the broader UN system have been actively engaged in Bougainville for more than ten years.
The UN works closely with the ABG and the national government in supporting sustainable development, small arms reduction, trauma counseling and the creation of sustainable livelihood economic developments in the region.
The UN is increasing its presence in Bougainville, it has been engaged in the region for a long time and new partners are coming on board.
