How many protected areas do we have in PNG?

Sumkar District, Madang, PNG's proposed and established CAs.
We need funds to help deliver cartons of library books to remote coastal and inland schools within our project sites in Madang. If you wish to make any generous donations please contact me on: magun.wences@gmail.com


Dear Partners,

We need some information to help us prepare our lessons for a CBD workshop in December. Please answer the following questions or connect us to someone who can help.

1) Give us a list of protected areas by classes for PNG to date. How many:
a) National Parks;
b) National heritage sites;
c) Special Management Areas;
d) Community Conservation Area;
e) Locally Managed Marine Areas; and
f) Marine Sanctuaries do we have in PNG?

2) How much hectares or % of land, sea and water coverage do these protected areas cover and where are they located? When were they established and by whom? What are their current status like?

3) What is the over-all national target for us to reach in establishing protected areas in PNG, and when do we want to achieve that?

4) Who are the key players involved in delivering this service as NGOs, National Government, Provincial Governments, CBOs, or Companies and can we know what they are doing?

5) How often and where and when do these stakeholders meet to share their work?

6) Where can we obtain a Data with list of "other effective area-based conservation measures"?

7) We need the following documents:
i) Vision 2050,
ii) New Strategic Directions (2007),
iii) PNG Development Strategic Plan 2010-2030, and
iv) Mid Term Development Plan 2011-2015.

8) Since this workshop will be in Madang, we also would like to have access to the Kalibobo Vison.

Your feedback will help us prepare our lessons for a workshop in Madang.

The workshop will be co-facilitated by Mrs. Adolphina Luvongit and me. We both hold certificates in Regional Capacity-building Workshop for the Pacific region on Traditional and Customary Sustainable Used under the CBD after attending this workshop from the 26 to 28 August 2014, in Apia, Samoa.

Our target group of 13 participants will all be indigenous and local community resource managers in Madang and one participant from West New Britain. We would like to extend the invitation to others but we do not have the funds to meet the expenses. If funding permits, we will invite one technical expert on the Locally Managed Marine Areas network person to come in and do a presentation to the participants. We have Annisah Sapul in mind but again it all depends on the availability of funds.

The methodology of this workshop will be as follows: PowerpointPresentations by Mrs. Luvongit and me on:
A) i) traditional knowledge under the CBD, and the outcomes of the Regional Workshop on Traditional Knowledge under the CBD which was held in Apia, Samoa from 26 to 28 August 2014; and ii) Promotion of the implementation of Articles 8 (j), 10 (c) and related provisions of the CBD as well as the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and its Aichi Biodiversity Targets as well as the Nagoya Protocol at national or
local levels;
B) Indigenous and local communities managers for ‘other effective area-based conservation measures’ (OECM), sharing their knowledge and experiences;
C) LMMA expert sharing his/her experience/YUSS and other CA's LESSONS LEARNED;
D) Site seeing to established CD, LMMA, OECM and arts/cultural and sacred sites.
F) Graduation and presentation of Certificates

The expected Outcomes will include:
i) Thirteen Indigenous and local communities resource managers or their representatives gain knowledge on the Aichi Biodiversity Targets as part of the Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020 and the Nagoya Protocol;
ii) Participants appreciate community initiatives in establishing ‘Other Effective Area-based Conservation Measures’ (OECM) using LMMA, CD, ICCADs, or traditional conservation management methods;
iii) Participants understand that their community conservation efforts which constitutes significant cultural and biological diversity areas falls either within or beyond the global protected area estate;
iv) OECM identified; recommend and / or suggested as appropriate conservation tools to achieve CBD’s Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2020.

Your attention and support will be highly appreciated.
