The Papua New Guinea (PNG) forests are vital for the human population that they sustain, the wide biological diversity they contain, the ecological services they provide and in maintaining climatic stability. They also provide commercial timber; approx. 3 million m³ of raw logs were exported in 2011. Over-exploitation by the logging industry, and flaws in its management by the government has long been a serious issue in. Increased transparency and good governance of the logging industry remains key to retaining PNG’s forest estate and the values it provides to the people, its customary owners.
