National environment Management strategy 2021-2025
The National Environmental Management Strategy (NEMS) 2021-2025 is a commitment by Papua New Guinea to conserve and improve its environment for current and future generations. It is a living document that provides a framework of environmental strategies and actions for the next five years. The strategy takes into consideration existing global, regional and local targets, threats and drivers and the environmental framework which PNG is committed to implement. The strategy is the outcome of a consultative process by national and state stakeholders during the development of the PNG SoE in 2019. The SoE report identified seven thematic areas, which have been organised into eight themes for the NEMS, as follows: THEME 1. Environmental Monitoring and Governance THEME 2. Atmosphere and Climate THEME 3. Freshwater Resources THEME 4. Land THEME 5. Marine and Coastal THEME 6. Biodiversity THEME 7: Built Environment: Consumption and Waste THEME 8. Culture and Heritage During the development of the SoE and NEMS, the CEPA in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF) also worked on the National Biodiversity Strategic Action Plans (NBSAP) 2018-2023. CEPA worked with UNDP on the 6th National Report for the Convention on Biodiversity 2019. Other reports were prepared for the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) Secretariat, and three National Reports were finalised for the UNCCD Secretariat on Land Degradation. The NEMS is aligned with the NBSAP, CBD, UNCCD, DSP 2010- 2030, MTDP 3 2018-2020 and the Vision 2050.
