National Development Plans in PNG — How They Measure Up Against the National Goals and Directive Principles

Kaiku, Patrick


This paper revisits the development models promoted in recent national plans in PNG, the influences that framed their ambitious visions and their compatibility with the earlier NGDPs. Learning from the failed attempts at implementing the National Goals and Directive Principles (NGDPs), this paper suggests making them justiciable and institutionalised — as suggested by the Constitutional Planning Committee (CPC) —for the purpose of vetting development policies and programs.
