Our Vision is to serve society through the provision of consultancy, project management, training and research services in the Pacific region.
Our Mission is to achieve our vision by focusing on our core business to further learning, growth and sustainable social and economic development.
With its close connection to DWU and its affiliates, DPL is able to draw on the capability of academic staff who are well regarded leaders in their respective fields. DPL’s experts have been involved in development projects in PNG and the Pacific.
DPL consultants are actively involved in applied research and have experience in socio-economic studies throughout PNG and the Pacific. Researchers apply accepted best practice methods, have access to the latest information, and produce quality reports that offer relevant and realistic information and strategies. DPL draws on the expertise of the DWU Academic Faculties to design training programs that are tailored to the client’s requirements. In addition DPL encourages client involvement and consultation in the design stages of the training programs.
DPL currently employs three full-time staff in its Madang office. Extensive use is further made of a network of specialists and experts in the fields of education, health, information technology, business, tourism & hospitality, and community development. In this regard we draw on our skilled network of DWU academic and administrative staff and affiliates in PNG and overseas that are utilised (if and where required) in the undertaking of consulting assignments. DPL has access to quality training and conference facilities particularly at DWU campuses in Madang and Port Moresby.
