NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT HUB

The PNG Biodiversity website forms a part of a range of tools under the PNG Natural Resource Management Hub to aid PNG’s policymakers, civil society organizations and other stakeholders to make informed decisions on policies, investments and livelihoods.

Collating and aggregating data from a wide range of sources, the NRM Hub can help with project planning, reporting and the evaluation of natural resource management processes.
