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
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
Environmental Monitor 2002 is designed to provide basic information about PNG's natural resources, pressures affecting these resources and steps which need to take place to ensure PNG's awareness of economic benefits and trade-offs involved between development and sustainability. It is the first in Monitor Series which aim to engage and inform stakeholders of key environmental issues.
This report stems from a simple observation: that since Independence in 1975, Papua New Guinea’s economic and social development outcomes have not matched people’s aspirations or government promises. Indeed, despite the abundance of its riches, PNG lags behind its Pacific neighbours on many important development indicators.
