Shoot: Land Grabs Threaten PNG's Forests

GP0STO26
Papua New Guinea‘s forests are the third largest, and some of the most diverse, on Earth. They support many cultures as well as a rich diversity of plant and animal species. Yet 60% of PNG's ancient forests have already been lost to industrial and illegal logging. The World Bank estimates 70% of logging in PNG is illegal. Now there is a new threat to the remaining forests. The United Nations has questioned Papua New Guinea on the recent rollout of over 5 million hectares of agricultural leases. These agricultural leases (known as Special Agriculture and Business Leases - SABLs) cover about 20% of the country’s forests and represent one of the worst contemporary cases of cultural land grabs. They will decimate PNG’s remaining forests and biodiversity unless they are overturned. Greenpeace is in PNG at the request of customary landowners who are fighting to hold on to their land and forests.
