Message from NFS Managing Director Mr. Kanawi Pouru
|Welcome to the Papua New Guinea Forest Authority (PNGFA) website. The PNGFA website which was launched on February 14th 2007 is very essential in communicating with our different stakeholders. |
Although one of our major stakeholders – the resource owners will rarely be able to get information through our website due to infrastructural limitations in their villages, the creation and launching of this website is very important.
The PNGFA is committed to “promote the management and wise utilization of the forest resources of Papua New Guinea as a renewable asset for the well-being of present and future generations”.
Did you know that March 21 was declared the International Day of Forests by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA)?
State members of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, at its 16th session of the Conference of the Organization, held from November 6-25, 1971, supported the establishment of World Forestry Day on March 21 each year. But it was only in February, 2013, that the UNGA approved its commemoration.
