Political Economy Analysis of Papua New Guinea


Bodhi was contracted by Palladium to undertake a gender-sensitive political economy analysis examining the broad context of Agriculture, Forestry, and Other Land Use (AFOLU) governance at the national and provincial level of Papua New Guinea. The analysis aimed to inform Palladium's programming in the country by offering insights into the gender dynamics and political-economic factors that influence the management of AFOLU resources in the country. Using a gender-sensitive approach, we focused on identifying the barriers faced by women with regards to consultation on, and inclusion in, decisions around forest governance, land use and sustainability.
