GUIDELINE FOR CONDUCT OF ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT & PREPARATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT.
The Guideline is intended to assist and guide prospective developers (or their consultants) with an intention to carry out Level 3 activities in Papua New Guinea ("PNG"), to meet their legal obligations under Section 51 and Section 53 of Environment Act 2000 (the "Act").
The Act gives effect to the National Goals and Directive Principles in the National Constitution, in particular the fourth goal on Natural Resources and Environment.

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.

Maximum Flow, minimum flow and discharge (flow) datasets in cubic feet and the latter in acre feet. Data collected by the Department of Works (Commonwealth of Australia) from 1954 to 1964 (10 year period). Data extracted from PNG State of the Environment (SOE) Report 2020 (page 198)
PNG is signatory to number of Multilateral Environmental Agreements and UN Conventions, in which CEPA administers 14 of them. The treaties focuses mainly on biodiversity, climate, wastes& pollution.
This Forestry Sector Outlook Study for PNG has been prepared in response to the initiative by the Asia Pacific Forestry Commission (APFC) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). It is intended to update the last study that was concluded in 1998 by all member countries and in doing so assess the probable scenarios for forests and forestry to the year 2020.
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.
In 2006, Papua New Guinea formally nominated seven identified areas for the World Heritage Tentative Listing. To date, none of these areas has been nominated to the World Heritage List. This desktop review examines the seven sites on the Papua New Guinea World Heritage Tentative list and reports on the current knowledge, condition and threats to each of these sites; as well as recommendations made to address identified issues and provide guidance for advancing the "processes of identification, protection, conservation, presentation and rehabilitation of this heritage".

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.
A species survey carried out by Dr Allen Allison through the UNDP small grants. The location of survey is along the KokodaTrack, Owen Stanley Range Region. The full dataset is available upon formal request.
The Protected Area Forum's (PAF) outcome is that the forum will enable protected area practitioners, researchers, academics, private sector, potential donors and local communities who manage or support protected areas in PNG, to share their experiences, insights and any lessons learnt in relation to factors impacting protected areas. It will identify and formulate national priorities for effective protected area management in the country. The results of the forum will contribute to the implementation of the Protected Area Policy.
Conservation and Environment Protection Authority (CEPA) is seeking to hire a local consultant to develop the Policy on Access and Benefit Sharing of Genetic Resources under the Nagoya Protocol of the Convention on Biological Diversity.
The consulting project is established in partnership with the University of New South Wales (UNSW, Sydney) and funded by the GIZ-led, European Union (EU) funded multi-donor Access and Benefit-Sharing (ABS) Capacity Development Initiative (CDI) Pacific Regional Project.
