State of the Pacific 2018: Resource Management in the Pacific

Against a global backdrop of high demand and growing scarcity, resource management is a key challenge in PNG and the Pacific islands region. This is accentuated by the growing number of external actors in search of land-based and maritime resources, as well as by the heavy reliance of local communities, governments and economies on natural resource extraction. This panel will examine issues of access, distribution of benefits and resource security across different scales, drawing on examples from both maritime and land-based resource management.
