Binding: Soft cover

Book Condition: Very Good


200 pp., illustrations, bibliography, index. As a Third World country, rural development is a major concern in Papua New Guinea. The Constitution, through goal Nos. 1 and 2 of the national goals and directive principles (NGDPs), provides for equal development for every individual and every society. Government policies and development framework such as the medium term development strategies (MTDS), and the provincial and district development plans provide the platform to enhance visions for rural development embraced in Goal Nos. 1 and 2 of the NGDPs. In that respect, the focus for rural development is founded on the Constitution, and therefore, it is an important sector. However, whether rural development plans in the form of MTDS or provincial and district development plans are implemented to achieve their purposes depend first and foremost on the leaderships provided at various levels of our government and administrative structures. They must take the lead to budget for and implement the plans which will start up rural development. Ad hoc approaches are not only destructive for initiatives for properly-planned rural development pathways, but are more likely to disorient social order in the rural communities. Inequalities in Developing Rural Communities in Papua New Guinea - a Pangia Perspective, a new book by author and lawyer Stanley Liria, presents an analysis of challenges in rural development in PNG with respect to the Wiru society of Pangia in Southern Highlands Province. It draws its analysis of development issues based on the author's first hand field research and experiences. 0.0. Bookseller Inventory # 998086091XPNGCON092112
