He was also acknowledged on his part in giving services towards the conservation and protection of biodiversity areas in PNG.
Minister for Environment, Conservation and Climate Change John Pundari said given the strategic support and leadership provided by UNDP under the leadership of Mr Trivedy, a lot has been achieved in the last four (4) years.
Pundari said he is satisfied that PNG as a country is on the right path towards achieving some of the National Goals as well as the SDG’s.
“With the recent launch of the National REDD+ Strategy and after attending the 23rd Conference of Parties (COP) meeting in Bonn, Germany, there is still a lot of work to be done but I am confident that with the ongoing partnership with UNDP and other good development partners, we are on track to push forward the climate resilient development agenda and conservation and protection of biodiversity in PNG,” Minister Pundari said.
Papua New Guinea is implementing SDG 13 through its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) which is an official document that allows all countries, developed and developing to take action on climate change and officially make it known to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
