This Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) guidebook was developed with an aim of supporting potential investors and project developers with the basic knowledge on the environment surrounding CDM project development in Papua New Guinea (PNG). In addition to general demographic and climate change mitigation information for PNG, the guide provides country specific information from a practical aspect of identifying and developing CDM projects in PNG under the UNFCCC former arrangement - the Kyoto Protocol. The objective of this booklet is to provide guidance to stakeholders investing in PNG.
The Climate Change and Development Authority (CCDA) is embarking on a Regional Consultation to discuss how stakeholders can access the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and review the current Climate Change (Management) Act (CCMA), 2015 within the national, sub-national including district and local levels
Being ready for REDD+ is a precondition for Papua New Guinea to move to the next phase of REDD+, that is, to implement REDD+ Policies and Measures to effectively reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, and promote the role of conservation, sustainable management of forests and enhancement of forest carbon stocks. Successful REDD+ implementation, in terms of reduction in Greenhouse Gas emissions from the forest sector, will also enable PNG to access results-based payments through the UNFCCC in the future.
Papua New Guinea (PNG) has one of the most significant areas of largely-intact tropical forest in the world, although these forests appear to be facing acute and imminent threats. Forests are also a vital resource for the local population particularly in the remote rural areas of PNG, providing food, fibre, building materials, and support a variety of wildlife and ecosystem services.
This first BUR presents an overview of PNG’s national circumstances relevant to climate change, summary results of the inventory of anthropogenic emissions by sources and removals by sinks for years 2000 through to 2015, and also presents information related to identified mitigation actions; constraints and gaps; the financial support received in relation to climate change activities and related financial, technical and capacity needs, including a description of support needed and received; information on national circumstances and institutional arrangements relev

“The diversity, value and importance of our natural environment never ceases to impress me. Yet the level of threats that our unique and fragile ecosystems are facing has also not ceased to concern me. It is for this reason that my officers and I, work tirelessly to ensure that we can have development while maintaining and preserving our strategic natural assets”. Hon. John Pundari MBA, CMG MP
The purpose of this training is to assist in developing a country Roadmap for REDD+ MRV. It aims to assist countries understand the concepts and requirements of REDD+ MRV to access carbon base payment and for other national uses. It Ensure that REDD+ countries meet the necessary requirements of REDD+ activities through the REDDcompass with a sensible direction. It also gives individuals taking part in REDD+ activities the clear knowledge on building a sustainable REDD+ MRV that meets the Good Practise Guidance of IPCC reporting principles.
It aimed to provide participants with:
The Consultation Workshop for National Forest Monitoring System Action Plan, Greenhouse Gas inventory, Forest Reference Level for REDD+ in Papua New Guinea was a joint initiative of the Climate Change Development Authority (CCDA), the UNREDD Programme and the European Union held on the 7th and 8th of June, 2016 at the Grand Papua Hotel in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.
In preparation of the Forest Reference Level (FRL) submission and calculations of Greenhouse Gas Inventory (GHGi) in the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) Sector, experts from the three organisations met in Kavieng, New Ireland Province in 2017. Participants were from CCDA, the Department of Agriculture and Livestock (DAL) and the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).
The FAO experts have a wide range of experience working with different countries upon requests to the FAO Head Quarters in Rome. This is a report from the training session.
