PNG-Queensland rangers to work together

This follows the signing in Brisbane of a memorandum of understanding between the Kokoda Track Authority (KTA) and Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS).

Environment Minister John Pundari said the work that the rangers will undertake, carried out in steep terrain and wet conditions, will not be easy but will be very rewarding.

PNG ratifies Paris climate change agreement

The undertaking was made possible through a vote in parliament today, which saw 63 MPs vote in favour of the instruments of ratification.

This means the acceptance or approval accounting in total for 1.08 per cent of the greenhouse gas emissions.

PNG through the Environment, Conservation and Climate Change Minister John Pundari will deposit its instruments of ratification in the UN Depository next month in New York, during the High level United Nations General Assembly.

Pundari calls for investment in green technology

Green technology or clean technology is a term used to describe sustainable energy generation technologies such as photovoltaics, wind turbines and bioreactors.

Pundari stated in Parliament yesterday (Tuesday) that the rainforest is an asset for adaptation as well as mitigation and PNG is one of the only three countries in the world that has a regulatory framework.

He said this allows us to be able to deal with the challenges and the opportunities that climate change actually provides us with a window of opportunities for our people.
