Land-sea Conservation Assessment for Papua New Guinea (2017)

Date created: 07 March 2022

Papua New Guinea (PNG) is committed to the establishment of a network of protected areas to fulfil national and international commitments. The primary objective of this assessment was to provide an updated set of conservation priorities by integrating Terrestrial and Marine Programme of Works on Protected Areas (PoWPA) in PNG; this set of conservation priorities can be used as a roadmap for meeting conservation targets that fulfill PNG’s global conservation commitments (e.g. under the CBD Aichi 11 targets) as well as national targets (such as the Protected Areas Policy). These areas were vetted by experts through a series of workshops and a subset of these priorities, ‘Areas of Interest’ (AOIs), were identified as areas critical for immediate conservation attention.
