USAID Lukautim Graun Project

Small Grants for Biodiversity

These funds will reduce threats to biodiversity, strengthen traditional landowners’ rights, and promote women’s economic empowerment. 

U.S. Ambassador to Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and Vanuatu, Erin E. McKee at an event to announce these awards said: “Conserving PNG’s natural heritage comes at a critical time when biodiversity faces grave threats around the world, with critical species and habitats threatened at alarming rates,”

Each grant recipient will receive resources and support under USAID’s Lukautim Graun biodiversity project.
