  • Our work in Papua New Guinea

About

We are working in four communities in Central Province to undertake coral reef conservation activities and introduce village chicken keeping and vegetable gardens as alternative food/livelihood activities. A major obstacle for the sustainability of conservation projects is compliance among coastal communities, especially if it means short-term reductions in fish catch. We will address this problem by introducing village chickens as an alternative protein source for fish, which will run in parallel with community-led coastal conservation and livelihood initiatives. Six Master Farmers have been trained in poultry husbandry, coral gardening, participatory community decision making and permaculture, in order to lead activities in PNG.
