PNG forest cover

0.2 million hectares of forest lost in 15 years

This was revealed in the draft Forest Reference Level (FRL) National Report, prepared by the Climate Change Development Authority (CCDA) and PNG Forest Authority (PNGFA).

FRL is one of four key elements to be produced by developing countries implementing REDD+ activities.

Developing countries like PNG, who are aiming to implement REDD+ activities, have to submit a FRL to the UNFCCC secretariat for its technical review.
