Find Forestry expertise in Papua New Guinea

Agriculture, forestry, hunting and fisheries together contribute only 33% of Papua New Guinea’s GDP (2008). Forest covers over 60% of the total land area, but arable land comprises a mere 0.5% and permanent cropland only 1.4% (2005). Much of the country consists of rugged, mountainous terrain that makes forestation exploitation very difficult. Vegetation in the country is extremely varied, with diverse lowlands, rainforests, palm forests and mangrove swamps. The Papua New Guinea Forest Authority (PNGFA) is responsible for monitoring and controlling the wood- and forest-based industries and resources of the country. The export of forest products represented almost 5% of the value of all the country’s exports in 2005.
