Community Climate Change Adaptation in Manus Province, Papua New Guinea

“The community of Mbuke and Whal Islands just south of Manus Island in Papua New Guinea are becoming more resilient to climate change impacts and are strengthening their food security through projects such as mangrove planting, implementing marine protected areas, growing different food crops such as yam, and building seawalls. The islanders have formed the Mbuke Island’s People’s Association to help implement these projects and are receiving assistance from government departments and organisations such as The Nature Conservancy and WWF.”
