Engage the Pobuma LLG communities of Timoenai, Tawi, Peli and Mbuke in Manus Province, Papua New Guinea. Conduct a series of consultations with stakeholders to design relevant actions to address conservation threats from a rubber estate development located uphill from these communities. Though nothing will stop this development from going ahead, this project will engage technical and legal experts, along with local level government and partners (including representatives from the rubber estate), to map out an action plan that minimizes the impacts on affected communities in Pobuma LLG.

Strategic Direction: 1 Empower local communities to protect and manage globally significant biodiversity at priority Key Biodiversity Areas under-served by current conservation efforts
