Annual review of the Papua New Guinea- Australia Governance Partnership 2019
Summary of publication
The 2019 review of the Governance Partnerships by the Quality and Technical Assurance Group (QTAG) was focused on (1) understanding and improving the quality of the work streams in the partnerships and (2) assessing progress in implementing the management responses to the 2018 Annual Review.
QTAG's assessment is that implementation of the Partnership is better than in 2018 and that relations between the Partnership and its stakeholders have significantly improved. The review made a number of recommendations in relation to the different programs and recommended that all programs needed to finalise strategies for Gender Equity and Social Inclusion and ensure their integration within their Performance Assessment Frameworks.
DFAT's management response accepted or partially accepted all of the recommendations.
