Papua New Guinea: Climate-Resilient Green Growth Project enters its final year.

The Project Management Committee (PMC) of the Climate-Resilient and Green Growth (CRGG) Project met on Wednesday 23 February 2022 and endorsed the 2021 Progress and Outcomes Report on the CRGG implementation presented by the GGGI team in PNG. They also endorsed the 2022 Monitoring, Evaluating, Reporting, and Improving (MERI) Plan and M&E activities.

These reports are part of the oversight role of the PMC which is chaired by PNG’s Climate Change and Development Authority in ensuring the effective monitoring and timely implementation of the CRGG project to address the climate change and resilience challenges and priorities of PNG. Other members of the PMC include the PNG Department of National Planning and Monitoring, the Department of Provincial and Local Government Affairs, and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) of Australia.

The PMC also discussed and provisionally approved the overall 2022 implementation workplan and budget including the next steps for CRGG, which will focus on developing replication activities for the shadow provinces (Chimbu, Eastern Highlands, Manus and Morobe) and pilot provinces (Enga, Milne Bay and New Ireland) to inform the design of a CRGG Phase II 2023-2027.

The CRGG Project is a USD 4.41 Million Australian Government funded project that specifically aims to deliver climate resilience and green growth projects in multiple sectors in PNG provinces with leveraged finance. GGGI has been implementing this project since 2019.
