Ambassador Ebert-Gray said, “The U.S. government believes that every country must be given the opportunity to carve their own path to self-reliance and sustainable development. We believe that the most effective way to achieve our shared development goals is to enable local people to lead and manage their own development.”

The agreement will provide access to funding for civil society organizations to assist in building the longer-term environmental resilience of Papua New Guinea.

USAID, through its Ready project, will be working with UNDP to deliver small-scale, climate change adaptation activities, initiated by local community groups and non-governmental organizations.
