Promoting Skill Transfer for Human Capacity Development in Papua New Guinea

In Papua New Guinea (PNG), for example, the working-age population is estimated to grow by 2.2 million people between 2014 and 2030. The country faces a growing challenge to create work opportunities for its people. This report examines the correlation between skills gaps and labor market efficiency in PNG’s construction industry. Using six case studies, the report proposes actionable recommendations for policy makers, development partners, and other stakeholders. Find out how these recommendations—although based on PNG infrastructure projects funded by the Asian Development Bank—may be used by a broader range of stakeholders to address skills gaps across the Pacific.
