Challenges, Current Initiatives and Strategy – Education and Financial Management A. Current situation Education and financial management in Papua are limited by many different factors.

Without the ability to share information across Papua’s distances, and across its mountains and marshes, no management effort will be successful.

These processes, in turn, will prepare teachers and schools in Papua to participate in the more sophisticated information-management initiatives that are currently planned or underway.
