2014 PNG NATIONAL HUMAN DEVELOPMENT REPORT From Wealth to Wellbeing: Translating Resource Revenue into Sustainable Human Development

The report reviews the state of human development in Papua New Guinea in terms of the three pillars of sustainable development –economic, social and environmental – and specifically examines the ways in which the extractive industries have contributed –positively and negatively – to these related but distinct pillars. While there have been some measurable achievements in terms of improvements in human development (increases in life expectancy, per capita income and educational achievement), many of the indicators are less positive. Despite 14 consecutive years of economic growth, there has been little change in poverty levels in the country. In fact the level of inequality in the country has increased.
