This Environment and Social Management Framework (ESMF) covers the “Sustainable Finance of Papua New Guinea’s Protected Area Network Project” prepared by the UNDP as the GEF Agency in close collaboration with PNG Government through the Conservation and Environment Protection Authority. As background, this Project builds on the achievements and lessons from the current GEF 4 & 5 projects, where relevant. Please refer to the Project Document for details.
This ESMF has been prepared based on the social and environment screening procedure (UNDP’s SESP) that was completed as part of the project design phase that included consultations with implementing partners, local communities, private sector and civil society entities. This screening resulted in the identification of 6 risks of which 1 risk was considered “low” risk while 5 of these risks were considered “moderate”, resulting in an overall social and environmental risk categorization of “Moderate” for the Project.
