PAPUA NEW GUINEA:
Greenpeace Forest Update April '97
Sandline and the Rainforests, and much more
Link here for another excellent, very current, report on the rainforest situation in Papua New Guinea put out by Brian Brunton of Greenpeace based in Papua New Guinea. Lots of bombshell information including illustration of how Sandline mercenary corruption is symptomatic of a deeper malaise, identifying that the logging code has not been implemented, noting that PNG has signed the World Heritage Convention, an analysis of 1996 export data and pricing, and the effects of impending elections on forest giveaways. The update then goes on to highlight recent developments in logging and rainforest conservation on a province by province basis.
