Governor Parkop calls for forestry to be solution to climate change

Governor of the National Capital District Powes Parkop has said that he understood why trees have to be cut but he called on the Papua New Guinea Forest Authority (PNGFA) to be a solution to the effects of climate change. Speaking in Port Moresby on March 20th, 2020 to commemorate the International Day of Forests, Governor Parkop said: “I understand totally why we have to cut trees but it is time for us to be a part of the solution to the effects of climate change.

Dr. Turia replies to Governor Parkop: “We cannot replant immediately after harvest b’cos land doesn’t belong to gov’t”

Papua New Guinea Forest Authority (PNGFA) nor logging companies cannot immediately replant after trees are harvested because the land on which the forests are harvested are owned by landowners and not the government, Dr. Ruth Turia, PNGFA’s Director for Forest Policy and Planning said this when responding to National Capital District Governor Powes Parkop on March 20th, 2020. She also called on everyone as landowners to talk to their people to give land to plant trees.
