The development of this policy has been conducted in consultation with these multiple stakeholders. Their input has been invaluable and the strong working relationships that have been established with the Government will continue. Through concerted joint action, with the leadership of the Government, Papua New Guinea will be part of the effort to combat climate change in this global village.
The policy will provide a clear demarcation of the roles and responsibilities for coordination, implementation and review of climate change strategies, including but not limited to the utilization of existing service delivery mechanisms such as under the Organic Law on Provincial & Local Level Governments (OLPLLG). This Policy will also provide an avenue in fostering greater indigenous participation from the community and ward level, while encouraging District and LLG implementation.
