Local and institutional capacity development to monitor biodiversity response to climate change using Hogave Conservation Area, EHP, Papua New Guinea
This is a national NGO based in Goroka, Eastern Highlands Province. The project aims to set up long-term biodiversity monitoring plots in Hogave Conservation Area (HCA), a conservation site in Lufa District of Eastern Highlands Province. The project will help map the proposed boundary, while fencing the conservation area and providing seedlings to the local communities. The outcome of the monitoring will gain a better understanding of animal behavior associated to the impact of climate change, i.e. how species (fauna and flora) will respond to changing climate and how it can affect people’s livelihood. The research will further identify the ecological consequences so that well informed conservation and livelihood decisions can be made.

The NSC approved US$48,804.52, however there was an error made to the calculation. The actual grant amount should be US$50,520.31 using Feb 2015 UN Exchange Rate (2.56) which is higher than the sealing amount for the Full Grant. Due to that, the National Coordinator used her discretion to award US$50,000 as this was never intended for a strategic grant.
26 September 2019 - The database information is being updated to reflect only the total amount disbursed and not the total Grant Award as stipulate don the MOA.
