CHANCE FIND PROCEDURE INCORPORATED INTO THE ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL MANAGEMENT FRAMEWORK FOR THE WATER SUPPLY AND SANITATION DEVELOPMENT PROJECT (WSSDP).
Papua New Guinea has the lowest water and sanitation access indicators amongst the 15 developing Pacific Island nations. The latest (2015) update of the UN’s Joint Monitoring rogram (JMP) estimates access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation in PNG in 2012 at 40% and 19% respectively. Over the period of more than two decades since 1990, the increase in access to safe drinking water has been very small (access in 1990 was 34%), while improved sanitation coverage recorded a drop from 20% in 1990 to 19% in 2012. PNG has missed its Millennium Development Goal targets for water and sanitation, and is not on track to meet its own national development targets of 70% access by 2030, and 100% access by 2050.
