Environmental safeguards

Works Dept rolls out new policies

Australia, through the Transport Sector Support Program (TSSP), partners with PNG agencies to design, build and maintain transport infrastructure that aligns with PNG government policies such as the Medium-Term Development Plan III Environmental Safeguards requirements. This includes ensuring low carbon emissions and building resilience to climate change and disasters for local communities. 

TSSP recently supported the Department of Works and Highways (DoWH) to roll out its updated Environment and Social Safeguards Policy 2019 and Climate Change Policy 2022.
