  7. 7. Opportunities for Women Empowerment • In PNG, studies have shown that women do the majority of work in Agriculture. Therefore investments in the PNG Women in Agriculture initiatives can significantly impact on the national HDIs towards meeting the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). It will also enhance Integral Human Development and Equality of women and men as espoused in the guiding directive principles of our National Constitution. • PNGWIADF commits itself with passion to pursue and implement policies that are: • Improving the quality of the life of women can trigger a multiplier effect because of their multiple roles in raising children, in education and as stewards of natural resources in providing for the families. In response to the UN SDG2 , • Conducive to investments in human resource development, research and infrastructure and Finance
  8. 8. Re Think Agriculture = Agri - Business • The 40 year national strategic plan, termed Vision 2050 launched by the Somare/Temu government, draws attention to the importance of Agriculture as the • driver for a ‘Smart, Wealthy and Happy’ nation. However, we must do things differently • if we are to achieve different results – that means we need to rethink our approach to • Agriculture if it is to improve the wellbeing of the majority of the people in PNG. Kofi Annan, the former Secretary of United Nations in 2005 stated that: • “Study after study • has taught us that there is no tool for development more effective than the empowerment of women. No other policy is as sure to improve nutrition and promote health including the prevention of HIV/AIDS. No other policy is as powerful in increasing the chances of education for the next generation.”
  9. 9. Priority Areas for Development Through Partnership FOOD SECURITY ADDRESING: Climate Change, Gender Inclusiveness, Improve Nutrition, Agriculture Sustainability UN SDG2 • CLASSIC EXAMPLE: How to Address Climate Change Using traditional Knowledge in Promoting it in various stakeholders Capacity. • Promoting PNG Traditional Vegetables via Research in identifying their Nutritional Contents and Cooking demos.
