Discussion Paper 5 published in June 2011. This paper measures the extent to which both donor finance and resource revenues have contributed to higher rates of expenditure in key development sectors of the PNG economy—social services (including health and education) and infrastructure, between 1975 and 2010. Estimated elasticities are then compared against a hypothetical revenue scenario to assess the potential contribution that post-2014 LNG revenue inflows may have on increasing the financing available to these sectors.
AusAID report on PNG's Development Cooperation Strategy 2006-2010 including details on the strategy, the implementation, monitoring and evaluation as well as background papers
The purpose of this Country Strategy Paper (CSP) is to provide the overall framework for EC cooperation with PNG in the context of the support to be provided under the 10th EDF (2008-2013).
PAPUA NEW GUINEA 2004 Draft Mid-Term Review Conclusions
Research on the impact of Foreign Aid on Poverty and Human Well-being in PNG
Aim of the United Nations Development framework is to ‘Support Papua New Guinea’s national development strategies for achieving sustainable human development and poverty reduction through equality and participation and the sustainable use of the country’s natural resources while ensuring environmental conservation’
Information on PNG from the Proceedings of the Pacific Regional Consultation on Water in Small Island Countries – Country Briefing Papers at least 2003 or older.
The corals reefs of Australia and Papua New Guinea cover 19% of the world’s total reef area and contain levels of biological diversity approaching the ‘hot spots’ of the Philippines and Indonesia; Human pressures on these reefs are lower than in other parts of the world (particularly SE Asia).
JICA Country Profile on Environment of Papua New Guinea (PNG) was carried out by the Planning and Evaluation Department Japan International Cooperation Agency in February 2002. This 37 paged report outlines PNG's fact sheets, organization structure, legislation, current environmental issues and international relations between PNG and overseas countries
Presents PNG's prioritized environmental concerns which include: 1) Environmental conditions – Papua New Guinea 2) Environmental protection – Papua New Guinea 3) Environmental impact analysis – Papua New Guinea 4) Public health – Environmental – Papua New Guinea 5) Marine resources – Conservation – Papua New Guinea 6) Fisheries conservation – Papua New Guinea
Report is financed by the European Commission and is presented by Mr. Wayne Borden and Mr. Gareth Ward of MWH SA for the Government of Papua New Guinea and the European Commission. It does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the Government of Papua New Guinea or the European Commission
Summarizes the findings to date, and places them in a regional and historical context. Discusses the SEAFRAME gauge in Manus Island, Papua New Guinea, which records sea level, air and water temperature, atmospheric pressure, wind speed and direction. It is one of an array designed to monitor changes in sea level and climate in the Pacific.
It is a Pre-Workshop In Country Review For Papua New Guinea 19th-23rd October 1999 in Nadi, Fiji Islands. Collaboration between NDMO, PNG NWS and Water Resources
PNG Country Report was published in 2006 or earlier. Reports the progress on mangrove wetland protection and sustainable use of these areas in PNG
Here we analyze rainfall data for the New Guinea region comprising station observations, reanalysis products and satellite-based estimates in order to better understand some of these details. We find that most gridded products are limited due to their relatively coarse horizontal resolutions that fail to resolve topographic effects. However, the relatively fine resolution TRMM satellite–based product appears to provide reliable estimates and linear correlations between the data and the NINO34 sea surface temperature index provides an insight into the pattern of ENSO rainfall impacts.
Esso Highlands Limited (Esso) proposes to develop the Papua New Guinea Liquefied Natural Gas Project
(PNG LNG Project) in a co-venture with other participants. Esso (as project operator) will produce and condition gas from new and existing petroleum fields in the Southern Highlands and Western provinces of Papua New Guinea, send the conditioned gas by pipeline across Gulf Province and the Gulf of Papua to a 6.3-Mtpa LNG Plant in Central Province, liquefy the gas, and load it onto LNG carriers for export. The project will also produce condensate for export.
Main Report describing the physical, chemical and biological environment of Misima Island and the possible impacts of development on the area
