THE present paper discusses a form of social classification which may be referred to provisionally as sex affiliation. The essence of it is that male children are classed with their father's group and female children with their mother's. I shall first endeavour to give an account, in its more or less relevant aspects, of the social organization of the people among whom this sex affiliation is practised; after that we may discuss the practice itself in greater detail and consider its implications.
The Kokoda Initiative is a partnership between the Government of Papua New Guinea and Australia to sustainably develop and protect the Kokoda Track and the surrounding Owen Stanley Ranges. The Initiative reflects the strong commitment of both governments to continue to enhance the quality of life of communities living along the track, to protect the environment, cultural values and to keep the track open and well managed.

The proposed Sustainable Highlands Highway Infrastructure Program (SHHIP) is envisaged as a ten- year, multi-partner, multi-tranche financing facility aiming to restore and upgrade the Highlands Highway in Papua New Guinea (PNG). The executing agency is the PNG Department of Works (DoW). The initial climate screening of SHHIP using AWARE determined the Investment Program to be at medium risk to climate and climate change. As a result, ADB procedures require that a climate risk and vulnerability assessment (CRVA) be undertaken during the design stage.
The gross domestic product (GDP) of Papua New Guinea (PNG) grew at an annual average rate of nearly 7% between 2007 and 2010, and is expected to perform even better in 2011. Moreover, the economy remained unaffected even at the peak of the global economic crisis, when most other major Southeast Asian and Pacific economies recorded low or negative GDP growth rates. Sound macroeconomic management in the recent past and planned initiatives such as the PNG LNG Project indicate that the economy will continue to perform well in the medium to long run.
The Highlands Region of Papua New Guinea (PNG), comprising of the Provinces of Western Highlands, Jiwaka, Southern Highlands, Hela, Eastern Highlands, Enga and Simbu, is a major contributor to the PNG economy through its agricultural production and mineral resources. A well maintained road network is essential to facilitate the movement of goods and people.
The objectives of the Wutung Pilot Border Trade Investment Development Project
(PBTIDP) are to remove the infrastructure bottleneck on the transport corridor and to
improve the investment environment in West Sepik Province (WSP) so that trade
opportunities can be opened up and potential businesses promoted in the region. The
Project aims to develop WSP into a dynamic growth centre for Papua New Guinea
(PNG) that can drive the development of the Momase Region including East Sepik,
Madang and Morobe Provinces and to other parts of PNG.
This report presents a world-wide inventory of operating mines that dispose of mine tailings to marine and riverine waters and a review of what is known about the environmental impacts of those discharges.

This publication is a consolidated list of protected fauna of Papua New Guinea, compiled from Fauna (Protection and Control) Act 1976 and the subsequent amendments. Fauna (Protection and Control) Act was enacted in 1966 and amalgamated into the revised laws in 1976 after the independence of PNG. This Act is solely confined to protecting animals (birds and mammals). The protected species listing under the Fauna (Protection and Control) Act is done by the National Gazette notifications. All protected fauna are the property of the State.
Papua New Guinea (PNG) is committed to the establishment of a network of protected areas to fulfil national and international commitments.
