This manual provides a standard guide line for the estimation of floods in PNG. It is intended for general use in the planning and design of small and medium sized engineering works through out Papua new Guinea. The prupose of the manual and its use is to guide or help help engineers or resource planners in the planning and designing of brodges, culverts, drainage works, small dams and flood mitigation works. It is available for sale and is sold at the price of K200 per copy. If you or your organisation is interested to purchase a copy, please contct Mr.
Considered as one of the world’s biodiversity rich countries, Papua New Guinea ranks among the megadiverse countries and the last frontiers for biodiversity conservation. This land of diversity hosts 6-8% of the global species, hosts one-sixth of known languages, and rivals Borneo, the Amazon and the Congo in terms of biodiversity wealth. PNG comprises the eastern half of the largest tropical island on earth, along with hundreds of smaller outlying islands, and its land mass only occupying less than 0.5% of the world’s total

Customary landowners, custodians of 97% of land in PNG, recognise many areas of land and sea as “tambu” – areas of special spiritual significance. Customary landownership is therefore integral to PNGs 2.1 million hectares in its 59 protected areas. Protected areas sustain livelihoods, help maintain culture, provide tourism opportunities, store carbon, and protect biodiversity.
Second Joint Coordinating Committee Meeting for J-PRISM II was successfully held at Laguna Hotel, Port Moresby, PNG on 16th April 2019.
J-PRISM II is a region-wide project in Pacific Islands targeting “Human and institutional capacity base for sustainable Solid Waste Management (SWM) in the Pacific region is strengthened through implementation of Cleaner Pacific 2025.”

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 is an economic evaluation of the compensation to which Papua New Guinea’s customary landholders -
wrongly dispossessed through Special Agricultural Business Leases (SABL) - might be entitled if they successfully sued the government. The evaluation involves the calculation of commercial loss but also, and probably moreimport antly, economic equivalent value loss. The framework identifies the relevant heads of value (not just priced transactions) and demonstrates appropriate methods for valuation. It does not pretend to be a price calculator but rather a tool for advocacy.

This pictorial review will show:
•how Earth history has given these islands immense biological and mineral riches;
•why the plants and animals are of outstanding value for science and natural history;
•the enormous diversity of human cultures developed over the last30,000 years;
•the footprints of human society and infrastructure that lie over the entire landscape;
