In Papua New Guinea (PNG), the absence of road links between its capital, Port Moresby, the second city, Lae, and the Highland Province, home to vigorous mining and agricultural production activity, meant a sole reliance on marine and air transport, a situation that was highly inefficient both in economic and social terms.

Gulf of Papua Prawn Fisheries (GoPPF) has come a long way since its development in the early years preceding Papua New Guinea’s independence from Australia. It started in 1969 and became PNG’s largest export fisheries apart from tuna. Prawn alone contributes significantly to the economy annually, earning between K2.5 million to K28 million or US$ 1.5 to US$ 11.5 million per annum. In fact, PNG’s prawn industry is very small compared to other countries in Asia. This is due to management regimes that limit all trawlers operating each season at 15 for the Gulf of Papua region (GoP).

It is desirable that all citizens of Papua New Guinea (PNG), wherever they live, have access to potable water and an appropriate standard of sewerage collection and treatment. Unfortunately, PNG‘s rugged geography makes that difficult, if not impossible, to achieve. Most of PNG‘s people live in rural areas (with over 85% of the population depending on semi-subsistence agriculture) and lack access to safe drinking water or sanitation. Apart from the cities of Port Moresby and Lae, urban areas are mostly small towns with fewer than 1,000 households.

A driver is a natural or human-­‐induced factor that directly or indirectly causes a change in the system of interest (Millennium Ecosystem Assessment 2005). Understanding drivers of change helps us to 1) identify causes and mechanisms of change in variables of interest (Biggs et al. 2011, Fereira et al. 2011), 2) be able to anticipate and sometimes even predict future outcomes, and 3) be able to understand the context or ‘backdrop’ of past change.

Nauru is a small country comprising a single island with an area of only 22 km2. The island is having severe difficulties in achieving a safe and adequate supply of potable water and suffers from pollution of local groundwater due to inadequate sanitation services. The problems have arisen from the collapse of the utility services when phosphate mining ceased, followed by a national financial crisis.

This report arises from the Final Evaluation Mission for the Programme. The evaluation has reported according to a format specific to GEF requirements for an assessment to the completion of the Programme. There is an active dialogue in PNG about what might come after the completion of the pilot Programme, building on the foundations which it has laid for strengthened biodiversity conservation. In particular, there is a keen interest in the future for the communities and biodiversity values of the two areas in which ICAD processes were initiated.
