The coral reefs in PNG are mostly located to the north and east coast of the country and lie within the ‘coral
triangle’ that includes eastern Indonesia, the Philippines, eastern Malaysia, Timor Leste and the Solomon Islands.
The coral triangle is a global centre of marine biodiversity and has very high conservation value.
This report documents the status, economies and management of corals -

The New Guinea Challenge - Development and Conservation in Societies of Great Cultural and Biological diversity
1995: The environment constraints map was produced by CSIRO and added as extra layer under the PNGRIS Project after much discussion and debate to address the issue of forest and environment sustainability. Other layers such water control districts, national parks, wildlife management areas and conservation needs assessment were used as flagged as part of the environmental planning and approval process.
1996-2000: The PNG Forestry Authority (PNGFA) with support from CSIRO developed the Forest Inventory Mapping (FIM) System to specifically map forest and vegetation types using forest mapping units or boundaries (or FMU) derived from aerial photography in 1973-4 at 1:100,000 scale and other relevant map overlays.

The BioRAP Toolbox constitutes a complex series of computer programs (ANUDEM, ANUSPLIN, ANUCLIM, PATN and TARGET). This was first assembled in 1994 – 1995 by the Environment Resources Information Network (ERIN), Great Barrier Reef Management Park Authority (GBRMPA), Centre for Resource and Environmental Studies (CRES) of Australian National University and CSIRO (Division of Wildlife & Ecology).
The Conservation Needs Assessment (CNA) for Papua New Guinea was requested by the government of Papua
New Guinea and funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The CNA was implemented by the Biodiversity Support Program, a USAID-funded consortium of World Wildlife Fund, World Resources Institute, and The Nature Conservancy, in collaboration with local and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), museums, and academic institutions.
Conservation and Environment Protection Authority (CEPA) is seeking to hire a local consultant to develop the Policy on Access and Benefit Sharing of Genetic Resources under the Nagoya Protocol of the Convention on Biological Diversity.
The consulting project is established in partnership with the University of New South Wales (UNSW, Sydney) and funded by the GIZ-led, European Union (EU) funded multi-donor Access and Benefit-Sharing (ABS) Capacity Development Initiative (CDI) Pacific Regional Project.
