Cardno implements the USAID Papua New Guinea (PNG) Biodiversity Program (USAID PNG Lukautim Graun Program) and PNG Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative-funded Promoting Women’s Economic Empowerment Project (WGDP). The biodiversity program will reduce significant threats to priority biodiversity hotspots in PNG by supporting communities to manage their customary lands and waters, working at both national and local levels to develop the capacities needed to provide communities with the legal, technical, and financial resources required to achieve the sustainable management of their natural resources. By linking LGP and W-GDP together, efforts to empower women in PNG will be enhanced while PNG’s capacity to manage its environmental resources will be strengthened. Both programs focus on building the capacity of women along natural resource-based value chains in PNG, as a method to improve economic empowerment outcomes for women and promote conservation of the country’s exceptional biodiversity.
