The Papua New Guinea Government plans to stop the single use of biodegradable plastic shopping bags by 2019, following the ban’s announcement this April.
Hon. John Pundari, Minister of Environment, Conservation and Climate Change, announced the ban, which follows unsatisfactory adherence to a similar one on non-biodegradable plastic bags in 2014.
Research on the Chronic Poverty in Papua New Guinea
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).
Management of disasters and emergencies in Papua New Guinea had been undertaken in accordance with the Disaster Management Act (Chapter 402). Whilst this legislation is purposeful the functions and responsibilities entailed in the Act have not been effectively and efficiently deployed. It is for this reason and consistent with the Act and the direction of the National Executive Council a National Environment and Disaster Mitigation Authority is being established .

This research provides information to assist PNG with the development of the Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) framework. It expands the work done by Dr. Eric L Kwa (Biodiversity Law and Policy in Papua New Guinea) in 2004 for PINBio.
Papua New Guinea (PNG) has one of the most significant areas of tropical forest in the world. These forests are, however, under threat from commercial logging, clearing of land for agricultural commodities, mining or the expansion of small-scale agriculture to meet the livelihood needs of the country's largely rural population.
This policy replaces the Papua New Guinea National Food Security Policy (NFSP) 2000-2010. The policy sets the medium to long-term direction and signals priority areas to focus resources (financial and human) to build sustainable food security for all Papua New Guineans. It provides a platform for joint planning to guide coherent programs and actions from all key stakeholders to strengthen food security in Papua New Guinea.
This policy applies to SPREP’s own data as well as data held by SPREP on behalf of government agencies and partners within the Pacific.
