General

In Papua New Guinea (PNG), forests cover 63% of the country and 97% of these forests are held in customary land ownership. About 80% of the population live in rural areas and they depend heavily on their forests. Under this initiative the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research is working collaboratively with the University of Queensland to identify how community forestry in PNG can be enhanced and scaled up to achieve better economic, social and environmental outcomes.
