The Politics of Accountability

An Institutional Analysis of the Conservation Movement in Papua New Guinea

The conservation movement in Papua New Guinea today is dominated by global interests and global agencies. This has especially been the case since the Rio Summit of 1992 and the signing of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity. Shortly after the Summit, the United Nations Environment Programme commissioned the first comprehensive study of biodiversity in Papua New Guinea (PNG), reporting that the country "harbors more than five percent of the world's biodiversity in less than one percent of its land area" (Sekhran and Miller 1994:6). In response to these findings, The PNG Biodiversity Conservation and Resource Management Programme was set up in 1993, with funding provided by the Global Environment Facility. The administrators of this program moved quickly, in the first year of their operation, to set up an integrated conservation and development project in Lak, New Ireland, and in 1995 a second project was set up in the Bismarck- Ramu area.
