Olsem Wanem – Episode 27, 2014

In this episode:


Culture is something that is valuable to many people in the Pacific region. It is something that we hold close to our hearts, it is our way of life that has been passed on from generation to generation and it is an important source of identity.

However, in some areas some culture and tradition are slowly dying. We now feature, the story of a New Caledonian woman inspired to carve among men to preserve culture.


We also take a look at New Caledonian stone carving and basket weaving.


As well as Papua New Guinea’s development issues that have been raised in the National Development Forum.


The forums provide opportunities for:


  • Public education on important policies
  • Allows Government to obtain feedback from the public to design or reconsider existing policies
  • Allows authorities to come out and explain their position and the functions of the offices they manage.

The Consultative Implementation & Monitoring Council or CIMC organizes a national development forum annually to create an avenue for feedback and consultation between the civil society, the private sectors and the government on important development policies.
