Shoot: Golden Chainsaw Award to PNG Government

GP027T0
Greenpeace activist Sam Moko (right) presents PNG representative Federica Bietta with the ‘Golden Chainsaw’ award. The Government of PNG is awarded the ‘Golden Chainsaw’ for demanding unconditional, fast-track money to Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) from the international community, even though it continues to destroy rainforests. Greenpeace recommends that PNG only receives funding when it has enforced a moratorium on all deforestation, tackling both corruption and illegal logging. It also urges donor countries to put strict preconditions on any REDD funds they give PNG, to ensure stringent safeguards are in place to protect biodiversity as well as indigenous peoples.
