Food security concern

​Water sanitation, food security critical during El Nino

Several global and regional climate agencies have predicted a potential occurrence of El Nino in the second half of 2017, which could bring drier than normal conditions to PNG.

Acting Director for the National Disaster Committee and co-chair of the PNG Disaster Management Team, Martin Mose, said during a workshop on El Nino preparedness that PNG has to plan properly for risk management and mitigation actions.

Mose said the country has to pay attention and identify the critical sectors that will be impacted, such as water and food security.
