UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)

Institutions must be fully engaged in compiling GHG Inventory data

These include institutions from the agriculture, forest and other land use (AFOLU) sector.

This was highlighted at a recent workshop in Port Moresby aimed to revise the work done so far on a complete quality assurance process of the GHG estimations in PNG.

The workshop was facilitated by the Climate Change and Development Authority (CCDA) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and attended by officers from the agriculture and land-use sector.

CCDA in partnership with FAO is working to complete the GHG estimations from the AFOLU sector to form the NGHGI.

International climate body granted access to PNG

Minister for Foreign Affairs, Rimbink Pato, announced this following his recent trip to the United States along with Minister for Pubic Service, Puka Temu and a PNG delegation.

He said accessibility to funding has always been an issue for PNG and other Pacific neighbours and allowing personnel from the global environmental body in PNG was a step in the right direction.
