The United Nations has been one of Bougainville’s key development partners in the peace building activities in the autonomous region.
Visiting United Nations Development Program Administrator, Helen Clark affirmed their commitment, to support Bougainville’s in its journey to achieving autonomy.
Last week, Clark met with Bougainville President Chief Dr John Momis in East New Britain, and discussed UN’s roles in the peace process.
Part of the broader package is the peace building funds that will be rolled out under a priority plan. At present, UNDP is on the ground, implementing this program.
The organization is also assisting the Finance Department on the capacity building program, aimed to strengthen fiscal discipline with strategic resource allocation, for effective service delivery.
This is to build a framework for Bougainville’s future implementation of programs that will capture accurate financial reports.
Clark urged the National and Autonomous Bougainville Governments, to work together to implement the peace agreement.
