Summary: This report provides an outline of the key historical, economic, demographic, political, geographic, socio-cultural, legal, and institutional issues that are relevant to understanding the status of women in Papua New Guinea (PNG). It begins with an exploration of the history of contact and political development in the country and discusses how the power of traditional and cultural factors has carried over in contemporary PNG, by and large preventing women from sharing equally in the benefits of development. Following a situation report there is a discussion along sector lines of how gender issues in PNG are influenced by a complex set of interrelated factors. Some gaps in information about the situation in PHG, particularly in the statistical database, are identified with recommendation for further research to strengthen the basis on which policies, planning targets and programs are formulated. The report concludes with a comprehensive profile of the major stade holders in PNG who have a role in policy development and project implementation and provides a detailed, annotated bibliography of literature on women, gender, and sectoral issues in PNG.
