What we do

The PNGAAA is an opportunity for members to maintain a genuine partnership between PNG & Australia, and with each other. Together we can work in partnership with all sectors of our society to deliver services & quality to our lives and that of our communities.

We believe that all members of our association can deliver and influence the development of this country for the better, through discussion, debate and ongoing professional development.

The PNGAAA aims to cultivate and strengthen the leadership ability and opportunities for alumni; and to create a forum for discussion and action on development challenges facing PNG and the Pacific.

This is achieved through the provision of:

  1. Professional Development Workshops
  2. Networking & Development Events
  3. Leadership Development Programs
  4. Spaces for development thinking and action (Conference, Think Tank)
  5. Employment Support
  6. Access to Small Grants
  7. Partnerships with PNG and Australian Institutions
