Abstract

Papua New Guinea (PNG) has over 800 different language groups. Decentralisation in PNG continues to devolve from central government. This paper considers government service delivery through decentralisation mechanisms noting provincial and local level governments have often inadequately facilitated service delivery. The 2014 District Development Authorities enabled provincial governments to be bypassed, thus reducing bureaucratic and administrative wastage, eliminate cultural and tribal politics, and delivering basic socioeconomic services directly at the district level.
