Papua New Guinea’s Sustainable Development Goal 13: Roadmap An Empowering Response to Challenges and Opportunities posed by Climate Chang

The PNG Government recognizes both the major impact that climate change will have on the country and the country’s responsibilities, as part of the international community, in the global effort to mitigate climate change. The actions that PNG is taking now, and those we will need through the coming decade, to respond to climate change are outlined in the 30 by 30 Roadmap presented in this document. Although the Government of PNG may take the lead on many of those actions, they will also need the resources, energy and commitment of subnational governments, the private sector, our development partners and civil society to be successful. This Roadmap should guide our work together.
