A milestone achievement has been reached for the Papua New Guinea (PNG) national government, development partners and stakeholders with the launch of the country’s second Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC).

The PNG NDC outlines key targets and climate actions that PNG is taking under the Paris Agreement as part of the global fight against climate change. 

The Hon. Wera Mori, Minister for Environment, Conservation and Climate Change officiated at the launch of Papua New Guinea’s Enhanced Nationally Determined Contributions 2020’’,on Monday 21stDecember 2020, in Port Moresby, said: “PNG can be very proud that we’re taking proactive steps in mitigating impacts of Climate Change”.

PNG is one of six countries out of 196 that are signatory to the Paris Agreement. 

“My Government, and through successive leaderships, have shown commitment to fulfilling PNG’s obligations under the UNFCCC through mainstreaming climate change into development priorities as per the Vision 2050, the National Development Strategic Plan 2010- 2030, and the Medium-Term Development Plan III”, said Minister Marape on behalf of Prime Minister Hon. James Marape.

 NDC2 5K4A6616

Papua New Guinea, as a signatory to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), ratified the Paris Agreement in New York during the 72nd United Nations General Assembly. PNG is a member of the Small Islands Developing State (SIDS) and aligns itself with the Alliance of Small Island Developing State (AOSIS) within the UNFCCC negotiations. PNG is also fortunate to be the current Chair of the Coalition for Rainforest Nations (CfRN). 

Acting United Nations Resident Coordinator, Mr Lance Bonneau, said there is no greater single-issue facing PNG’s national development than climate change.

“Taking urgent action on climate change requires a collaborative effort by all stakeholders from affected communities, Governments, civil society organisations, the private sector and development partners,” said Mr Bonneau.

Mr Bonneau said Papua New Guinea has always been at the forefront of climate action in the Pacific Region.

“This is a key milestone, and we are proud to be part of this great achievement. The enhancement of NDC with concrete targets to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions, within the Forestry and Energy sectors, reflects PNG’s continued commitment to reduce emissions. To building resilient communities, PNG has also included adaptation targets of NDCs,” Mr. Bonneau said.

The NDC commitments were offered from the National Climate Compatible Development Management Policy (NCCDMP), under which PNG aims to reduce its emissions to 50 percent by 2030 - and to be carbon neutral by 2050, while also maintaining a vibrant economy, and that the targets are conditional. The commitments for emission reductions are focused on the energy and forestry with targets of a carbon-neutral energy industries sector, a reduction by 10,000Gg of emissions from the forest sector through delivering a 25% reduction in levels of deforestation and degradation.  

Minister Mori congratulated the Climate Change and Development Authority (CCDA) NDC Technical Team with support from various key stakeholders, the development partners in particular UNDP, FAO, USAID, GGGI, NDC Partnerships, GIZ, IRENA; UNEP, DFAT and the NDC Regional Pacific Hub, who worked tirelessly on revising NDC and providing support throughout the process.

The Department of Lands and Physical Planning has brought together stakeholders from relevant national and provincial government agencies, incorporated landowner groups, and the private sector in the stakeholder consultation meeting on the review of PNG’s National Sustainable Land Use (NSLUP) for Southern Region from 28 to 30 October 2020. 

This is the last regional consultation workshop to share experiences and lessons learned, and to contribute to the revision of the NSLUP in the country. 

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) within its project on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) supporting the Government of PNG to harmonise land use sector based legislations in line with the National REDD+ Strategy 2017-2027 which was endorsed by the Government back in 2017.

Honourable John Rosso, Minister for Lands and Physical Planning acknowledged the support of all stakeholders and development partners to sustain and advance economic growth, and to promote responsible stewardship of land resources and social well-being in the country.

“Land is critical for Papua New Guinea as more than 90 percent of lands belong to people and having views of respective government agencies and landowners are important for us to streamline our efforts towards sustainable future of the nation,” said Honourable Minister Rosso. 

The UNDP Chief Technical Advisor Mr. Mirzohaydar Isoev, on behalf of UNDP, appreciated the Department of Lands for its leadership to ensure sustainable and green growth development in the country.

“UNDP as a longstanding partner of the Government is pleased to be part of the process, and to assist PNG moving toward the greener and more sustainable country. Whilst, we are also supporting other lead agencies to review the climate change and forestry policies – to align all sectoral legislations with the national and international commitments,” he said.

UNDP in Papua New Guinea (PNG) has been supporting the Department of Lands and Physical Planning (DLPP) to revise the National Sustainable Land Use Policy (NSLUP) with participation of an inclusive group of key stakeholders. 

The importance of NSLUP and planning is recognized under two key action areas of the PNG’s National Strategy on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+). 

It is to strengthen and coordinate the National Level Development and Land Use Planning through development of climate and REDD+ relevant development indicators within the national development framework and strengthening of development of national land use policy, planning and legislation. The other one is to integrate Subnational Planning through strengthening Ward Level (district council) and Local Level Government (LLG) planning, and strategic development planning at provincial and district levels, and the linkages between levels of planning.

The DLPP is leading the revision of the NSLUP, and currently undertaking stakeholder consultations across all regions of the country. 

More than 100 stakeholders from relevant national and provincial government agencies, incorporated landowner groups, and the private sector, came together for the New Guinea Islands Regional Consultation Workshop on 7-9 October in Kokopo, to share experiences and lessons learned, and to contribute to the revision of the NSLUP in the country. UNDP and World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) in PNG jointly supported this organization. 

Deputy Secretary of the DLPP, Mr. Oswald Tolopa said his department acknowledged the support of the development partners to sustain and advance economic growth, and to promote responsible stewardship of land resources and social well-being in the country. 

“Increasing awareness and potential benefits to sectoral agencies, subnational governments, and land-owner groups is crucial to the success of the policy, and requires sensitization and engagement over a period of time,” said Mr. Tolopa. 

The UNDP Chief Technical Advisor Mr. Mirzohaydar Isoev, on behalf of UNDP, appreciated the Department of Lands for its leadership to ensure sustainable and green growth development in the country. 

“UNDP as a longstanding partner of the Government is pleased to be part of the process, and to assist PNG moving toward the greener and more sustainable country. Whilst, we are also supporting other lead agencies to review the climate change and forestry policies - to align all sectoral legislations with the national and international commitments,” he said.

The Climate Change and Development Authority (CCDA) with support of UNDP’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF) REDD+ Project facilitated a validation of Papua New Guinea’s first Summary of Information (SOI) and Safeguards Information Systems (SIS) on 25 September 2020, participated by all relevant stakeholder agencies at the Inter-Agency Technical Working Committee meeting. 

The development of a SIS is one of the three safeguard-related requirementsoutlined by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and is linked to the delivery of results-based payments from REDD+ Policies and Measures (PaMs). The SIS will be working in alignment with the National REDD+ Strategy to have an effective SIS in place that will provide information on the application of the Cancun REDD+ Safeguards in PNG, which has to be in compliance with the guidance of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Whereby,the first SOI is presented on how safeguards listed in decision 1/CP.16 Appendix I, are being addressed and respected in accordance with decisions 12/CP.17, 12/CP.19, 17/CP.21.

Mr. Terence Barambi, the CCDA REDD+ Manager during his opening remarks on behalf of the Managing Director said, “The CCDA will closely work with partners across government sector and civil society to strengthen existing and new systems of safeguards within PNG to further preventing negative impacts, and striving to maximize positive effects of REDD+ actions on the development in PNG.”

Initially, the development of the social and environmental safeguards relating to REDD+ in PNG was started in 2012 with support from the UN-REDD Programme, when the draft of the Guidelines on National Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) for REDD+ and formation of a technical working group on SES relating to REDD+ were developed. Later in 2014, after various reviews and analysis of existing policies, laws, and regulation (PLRs), a SIS Roadmap was developed. 

In 2015-2016, with the support of the FCPF Project, PNG adopted a Country Approach to Safeguards (CAS) with a view of meeting multiple international REDD+ Safeguards requirements, especially those of the UNFCCC and the World Bank/FCPF, during which a scoping exercise was also undertaken to evaluate and assess the safeguards related activities previously undertaken in PNG, and several outputs and activities were carried out.

“I hope that with all of these more inclusive systems and required policies, PNG will be in a better position for incentives from REDD+ implementation so to continue taking more effective actions in conserving and sustaining their forests for the next generations to come,” said Mr. Mirzohaydar Isoev, the UNDP’s Chief Technical Advisor on REDD+, adding that, “I also encourage all key stakeholders’ inputs to promote a greater exchange of knowledge, expertise and skills, which then the systems will be well applied and accessed more effectively.”

At the workshop, participants were invited from different stakeholder groups, including academia, non-government organizations, partners, private sector, and other key government institutions from Papua New Guinea Forest Authority (PNGFA), Conservation and Environmental Protection Authority (CEPA), Department of Agriculture and Livestock (DAL), Department of Lands and Physical Planning (DLPP), Prime Minister and National Executive Council (PM&NEC), Department of National Planning and Monitoring (DNPM), Department of Justice and Attorney General (DJAG), Papua New Guinea Constitutional Law Reform Commission (CLRC), Department of Community Development (DCD), Department of Provincial and Local Level Government (DPLLG), Tourism Promotion Authority (TPA), Mineral Resources Authority (MRA), and National Statistical Office (NSO).

Papua New Guinea has the third largest tropical forest in the world and is at the forefront of working towards fostering conservation and sustainable management of its forest.

Zoom Call Meeting on SIS Database Reporting Training copy
The first group of the Zoom Call Training on SIS Database Reporting System


UNDP is working closely with government partner, the Climate Change and Development Authority (CCDA) to look at reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation, also known as REDD+. Deforestation increases greenhouse gas emissions thus contributing to climate change. How do we promote conservation and sustainable management of forests? Can the introduction of incentives help promote this cause?

Despite the current global COVID-19 pandemic, CCDA with support of the UNDP’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility’s REDD+ Project, held an online certification course on “REDD+ Safeguards Database Reporting System. 

Over 30 representatives from the government, civil society and private sector organisations benefited from this training and strengthened their knowledge on how to use the digital platform to protect the social and environmental safeguards. 

Mrs. Gwen Sissiou, CCDA General Manager for REDD+ and Mitigation said, “Drawing on information from the safeguards information system (SIS) can strengthen the quality, reliability and credibility of the summaries, particularly when it comes to demonstrating improvements in reducing carbon emissions from deforestation in PNG.”

Mr. Mirzohaydar Isoev, UNDP’s Chief Technical Advisor on REDD+ said, “The online training is an example of how digitalisation can be introduced to add value to national efforts to protect natural assets.”

In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as in many other African countries, the reduction of emissions from deforestation and forest degradation is a major national strategic priority. Previously, the Democratic Republic of the Congo has had limited technical capacity to produce and utilize data necessary for monitoring forest cover and changes. Since then, the country has established a national forest monitoring system (NFMS) to promote sustainable forest management practices and to take informed policy decisions on reducing forest loss. The FAO elearning Academy webinar “Forest Data and Transparency: ‘Zoom in’ on the Experience of the Democratic Republic of the Congo” will highlight the country’s experience in establishing NFMS, and explore the various ways it has been upscaled and widely used, as a basis for satellite land monitoring systems, in other countries in the region and globally. OBJECTIVES OF THIS SECTION Give a general overview of the ongoing work being done in the African region on forest monitoring and climate action; Present the “Capacity Building Initiative for Transparency – Forest” (CBIT-Forest) project and its support to the Paris Agreement goals; and Present the work being done in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in relation to transparency in the forest sector. HOW TO JOIN The webinar will take place on Wednesday 23 September 2020 | 14:30 - 16:00 (CEST) It is free and open to everyone, provided you have the link to the platform.

Los bosques son el hogar del 80 por ciento de la vida en la tierra, y con una asombrosa variedad de criaturas, grandes y pequeñas. Incluso las criaturas más pequeñas juegan un papel crucial para sostener la vida, permitiendo que los árboles y todas las demás plantas remarcables crezcan. Hoy en día esta biodiversidad sufre serias amenazas. Millones de hectáreas de bosques se pierden cada año.

Es en este contexto, que el manejo forestal comunitario entendido como una de las opciones más promisorias para resolver el gran dilema de la conciliación entre la preservación de la naturaleza y el desarrollo económico, ha cobrado importancia en las últimas décadas. Hoy por hoy, el manejo forestal comunitario es visiblemente reconocido como una de las opciones estratégicas que se deben promover para conservar, manejar y usar sosteniblemente los recursos, pero además, para mejorar las condiciones de vida de las comunidades rurales que dependen o viven cerca de ecosistemas boscosos.

El manejo forestal comunitario persigue un uso planificado de diferentes tipos de bosque por parte de las poblaciones locales; entre ellas, comunidades indígenas, campesinas, afrodescendientes, asentamientos de colonos, poblaciones ribereñas y pequeños agricultores o finqueros en general.

Actualmente, en el marco de la situación que el mundo afronta ante la pandemia por COVID-19 y los efectos críticos, no solo en la salud, sino a en temas socioeconómico, que la misma dejará en el mundo, el Manejo Forestal Comunitario es una de las soluciones basadas en la naturaleza que se ven promisorias para revertir en la medida de lo posible estos efectos. Se considera que el Manejo Forestal Comunitario podría hacer parte de las intervenciones que combinen la mitigación de la pobreza y la protección del medio ambiente (e.g. restauración y el monitoreo de los bosques, PSA, facilitar un mejor acceso y uso de alimentos silvestres, conocimiento tradicional).

En este contexto, el presente webinar se busca tener un intercambio de experiencias de manejo forestal comunitario en Latino América, entre Panamá, Ecuador, Perú y, Colombia, con el fin de dar a conocer los principales avances en cada país, pero además, tener una discusión sobre cuáles son los principales retos que se afronta en la sostenibilidad de estos procesos.



  • Intercambiar experiencias de manejo forestal comunitario en Latino América, entre Panamá, Ecuador, Perú y, Colombia, con el fin de dar a conocer los principales avances, y retos que se afronta en la sostenibilidad de estos procesos en cada país.



  • Fortalecer los lazos entre los grupos llevando a cabo manejo forestal comunitario en Latino América
  • Establecer la importancia del manejo forestal comunitario en las acciones para reducir la deforestación y degradación de los bosques



  • Generación de memorias del espacio y nota de prensa con los principales resultados. Para ello se coordinará con los especialistas en comunicaciones de cada país.

Coffee production in the Central Highlands faces a multitude of challenges; decades of intensive cultivation and expansion onto marginal land has degraded the soil quality and left smallholders less resilient to both climate change and vulnerable to fluctuations in the price of coffee. As a result, many smallholders are in a negative spiral of declining yields leading to the increasing application of inputs to compensate, which is further reducing their already limited margins.

This new analysis presents the business case for sustainable Robusta coffee cultivation in the Central Highlands region of Vietnam. In recent years, inter- cropping models involving coffee interspersed with shade or fruit trees have demonstrated their potential to generate multiple benefits to smallholders and the environment. This analysis focuses on the economic benefits of transitioning from an intensive coffee cultivation model to three different intercropping models: avocado, durian and cassia siamea and pepper, and makes recommendations concerning the transition pathway that will be most accessible to smallholders.

Even in poor market conditions, the analysis finds that diversifying a smallholding through the addition of another productive crop will generate economic benefits for the producer. Furthermore, the revenue generated through the addition of a crop can help to reduce the impact of periods of low coffee price on a smallholder’s livelihood. However, while this will provide a degree of economic resilience to a smallholder, if the coffee price remains consistently subdued, it cannot be said that the smallholder will or should not make the economically rational decision to replace their coffee plantation with what they perceive to be a more lucrative or less volatile crop.

In addition to economic benefits, diversifying a smallholding can bring potential environmental benefits: leading to increased biodiversity and improved soil structure, that may further contribute to the economic profitability of the model by reducing the requirement for irrigation or agricultural inputs and increasing resilience to climate driven drought or flooding.

Groundwater Monitoring using Observations from NASA’s Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) Missions (June 25, 2020)

Bilingual (English and Spanish)

Groundwater makes up roughly 30% of global freshwater. It also provides drinking water for the world’s population, and irrigation for close to 1/3rd of global agricultural land. Because of this level of reliance, monitoring groundwater is crucial for water resources and land management. The Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) and GRACE-Follow On (GRACE-FO) missions from NASA and the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ) provide large-scale terrestrial water storage estimation from mid-2000 to present. The mission uses twin satellites to accurately map variations in the Earth's gravity field and surface mass distribution.

GRACE observations have been used for detecting groundwater depletion and for drought and flood predictions. This lightning-style training is designed to answer the demand and interest from the applications community in technologies that can be used to support water resources management. The webinar will provide an overview of the GRACE missions, groundwater data availability, and their applications in the monitoring and management of water resources. This lightning webinar will also serve as the foundation for the upcoming advanced webinar: Using Earth Observations to Monitor Water Budgets for River Basin Management II.

Course Date and Times: June 25, 2020

Learning Objectives: By the end of this training, attendees will be able to access GRACE data and analyze regional groundwater changes

Course Format: A single, 1.5-hour webinar that includes a lecture and a question & answer session; One session offered in English (11:00-12:30 ET) and one in Spanish (14:00-15:30 ET)

Audience: The content of this training was developed for local, regional, state, federal, and international organizations engaged in the management of water resources, irrigation, and agricultural management.


Understanding Phenology with Remote Sensing (June 30, July 7, 14, 2020)

This training will focus on the use of remote sensing to understand phenology: the study of life-cycle events. Phenological patterns and processes can vary greatly across a range of spatial and temporal scales, and can provide insights about ecological processes like invasive species encroachment, drought, wildlife habitat, and wildfire potential. This training will highlight NASA-funded tools to observe and study phenology across a range of scales. Attendees will be exposed to the latest in phenological observatory networks and science, and how these observations relate to ecosystem services, the carbon cycle, biodiversity, and conservation.

Course Dates: June 30, 2020. July 7,14, 2020

Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)

Learning Objectives: By the end of this training series, attendees will be able to:

  • Summarize NASA satellites and sensors that can be used for monitoring global phenology patterns
  • Outline the benefits and limitations of NASA data for phenology
  • Describe the multi-scalar approach to vegetation life cycle analyses
  • Compare and contrast data from multiple phenology networks
  • Evaluate various projects and case-study examples of phenological data

Course Format: Three, one-hour sessions

Audience: This training is designed for individuals and organizations interested in using satellite imagery for mapping vegetation health and seasonal patterns. 


Advanced Webinar: Using Earth Observations to Monitor Water Budgets for River Basin Management II (July 21, 28,August 4, 2020)Rivers are a major source of freshwater. They support aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, provide transportation, generate hydropower, and when treated, provide drinking and agricultural water. Estimating and monitoring water budgets within a river basin is required for sustainable management of water resources and flooding within watersheds. This advanced-level webinar series will focus on the use of NASA Earth observations and Earth system-modeled data for estimating water budgets in river basins.Past ARSET trainings on monitoring water budgets for river basins focused on data sources relevant for river basin monitoring and management, and provided case studies for estimating the water budget of a watershed using remote sensing products. This advanced webinar will include lectures and hands-on exercises for participants to estimate water budgets for a given river basin.Course Dates: July 21, 28, and August 4, 2020.Times: 10:00-12:00 & 16:00-18:00 EDT (UTC-4); There will be identical sessions at two different times of the dayRegister HereLearning Objectives: By the end of this training, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify and access remote sensing and Earth system-modeled data for estimating water budgets in a river basin
  • Explain the uncertainties involved in estimating water budgets for river basins
  • Replicate the steps for estimating water budgets for a river basin and sub-watersheds using remote sensing products and GIS

Course Format: Three, two-hour parts that include lectures and demonstrations, exercises, and question and answer sessions. Each webinar will be broadcast in English with training materials available in Spanish.

Audience: The content of this training was developed for local, regional, state, federal, and international organizations engaged in the management of water resources, river basins, floods, droughts, land development, river transportation, hydroelectric power, and reservoirs.
