Environmental Sustainability & Climate Change
Bougainville is experiencing an increase in deforestation and unsustainable practices that leading to loss of bio-cultural diversity and ecosystem services. Cognizant of these escalating concerns, our organization is driving community based conservation efforts by working with communities to develop their resource management plans through consultation and dialogue.
Our interest areas are in conservation and climate change mitigation activities, biodiversity surveys, and environmental rehabilitation and restoration.
One of our major interests currently is ensuring that critical ecosystems within key biodiversity areas in Bougainville and East Melanesian Islands in general are kept intact and measures are taken to prevent the loss of endangered and vulnerable species of fauna and flora.
