permitting process.
Operational Manual is a dynamic and evolving document that should be continually
improved as situations arise to meet the new demands. At the same time, the improved
efficiency that is anticipated from the use of the manual would assist DEC to function

Papua New Guinea (PNG) has a total land area of 462,000 square kilometers (km2), making
it the largest Pacific island country. Its exclusive economic zone at 3.12 million km2 is the
world’s second largest. The country’s sparsely distributed population of only 7 million
makes PNG’s population density of approximately 9 people per km2 the lowest in the South
Pacific.
PNG’s principal marine and coastal ecosystems include 13,840 km2 of coral reefs, 4,200 km2
