In light of the many existing guidebooks already available to support CBA (cost benefit analysis), this document is intended only as an introductory guide with a focus on the practical application of CBA in the Pacific. It indicates key questions and issues to address but it does not explain the theoretical concepts underpinning CBA.

Papua New Guinea has large tracts of intact mangrove forest with a high species diversity extending over many thousands of shore kilometers and, in many regions, penetrating quite deeply inland.
Mangrove ecosystem is very useful and critical to PNG coastal communities. Its uses ranges from carbon sequestration, buffers coastlines against storm surges and sea level rise, breeding ground for fisheries, building, firewood, medicinal purposes to name a few.
The humphead wrasse *Cheilinus undulatus* is a small but important part of the international trade in live reef food fish, being one of the highest species in unit value. The main threats of the live reef food fish trade to the sustainability of the species are overfishing and the effects of destructive fishing on the target species, non-target species and on the reef environment.

Marine protected areas on the high seas? : an introductory guide to the legal issues surrounding the establishment of marine protected areas on the high seas
The establishment of designated areas in the ocean that restrict human activities is one of the most viable solutions to successful protection of the marine environment. To end destructive practices on the seas and reverse the loss of biodiversity, the World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002 called for the creation of a global network of marine protected areas. This guide aims to assist international policymakers and other stakeholders in accomplishing this task.
Marine invasive species are currently recognized as one of the major direct causes of biodiversity loss and changes in ecosystem provisioning and supporting services. This dataset documents the recent progress in addressing their growing threat to ocean biodiversity and ecosystems.
A guide into the management actions that will need to be taken into account for public awareness of myna birds and control actions.
