The project “Strengthening Integrated Sustainable Landscape Management in Enga Province of Papua New Guinea” will assist in strengthening sustainable and inclusive economic development of the Enga Province of Papua New Guinea by three components: i) improving climate change mitigation and adaption; ii) strengthening food and nutrition strategy and iii) improving biodiversity and land/forest conservation. It will be achieved through the development and delivery of an innovative approach to rural development that brings together government systems, private sector and community action to present a model for climate compatible green growth.
Integrated sustainable land use and development planning within provincial and district development planning will provide a framework and supporting environment for effective climate compatible development including both mitigation and adaptation actions. This framework will be used as a base to help catalyse community action on sustainable projects and the development of community conservation areas as well as private sector investment in the development and production of high quality ‘conservation commodities’ that have improved international market access and prices and support the delivery of multiple objectives at the community level. This integrated approach is fully in line with a number of government and private sector initiatives with the current project acting as a catalyst to bring these elements together as well as helping to bridge the investment gap presents in fully operationalizing these integrated approaches.
Through these actions the project will provide significant support to achieving both PNG’s Medium-Term Development Goals, including targets for increasing agricultural productivity, increasing areas under conservation and reducing levels of forest loss.
