Name:Analysis of Historical Deforestation, Degradation and Land Use in Central Suau, Papua New Guinea
Description:

The report gives an overview on drivers of historical deforestation and forest degradation in Central Suau, Milne Bay Province, PNG.

The results on historical land cover and use pronounce the dominance of agricultural areas for subsistence food and crop production with scattered coconut plantation along the sea shore.

The complex of identified agents, drivers and underlying causes are described: population growth is a major underlying cause and poses in conjunction with agricultural land use as livelihood activity and scarce land resources along the coast the high threat of deforestation on accessible primary forests.

Prepared by Österreichische Bundesforste AG on behalf of SPC/GIZ Regional Project ‘Climate Protection through Forest Conservation in Pacific Island Countries’.
