Known for its exceptional biodiversity, New Britain Island in Papua New Guinea has experienced increasing deforestation due to harmful agricultural practices in recent decades. The FOLUR project aims to restore 50,000 hectares of forests on the island by supporting the local authorities in establishing a plan for sustainable land use. These efforts are expected to benefit over 66,000 inhabitants and reduce the island’s carbon emissions by around 32 million metric tons. In this newsletter, the project reports activities for 2023.
