EIIP activities in PNG
Groundbreaking ceremony labour-based road works in PNG
The project in PNG funded by EU and implemented by FAO with an ILO component to improve the condition of transport infrastructure, mainly provincial, district or local level roads, air strips and jetties in East Sepik and Sandaun Provinces to create climate resilient and efficient value chain enablers for cocoa, vanilla, and fishery industries.
This road was promised by different organizations and leaders 12 times in history but never started except for some minor maintenance. The chief of the village was crying with tears emotionally that now at least their children can see and use a better road. People here experience a hard life exacerbated by a lack of access to goods and services and very poor transport.
