PNG Ward Record Book was published by Department of Provincial & Local Government Affairs (DPLGA) with the aim to bridge this information gap that prevents the development of comprehensive plans both for the national and local levels. (Local Level Governments Administration Act 1997, Sections 57(1) & 57(5). This will help in sound planning and policy making, resulting in the effective delivery of basic goods and services to the people, hence improving their living conditions.
PNG Ward Record Book will capture a wide range of critical data in a Local Level Government Ward. Based on that reliable data collected, Local Level Governments (LLGs) with their respective District Development Authorities (DDAs) and Provincial Governments will have a much better understanding of the actual development needs at their Wards.
