More traditional clans in the Bismarck Forest Corridor of Papua New Guinea agree on legally protecting their forest lands together.

Seven clans of the Wamiufa tribe, with a total estimated population of over 4000, have today signed a legally binding contract to protect their forest biodiversity from growing threats of over-exploitation of their forest land and wildlife.

By signing a Conservation Deed through support from the USAID-funded Lukautim Graun Project and EU-funded Sustainable Wildlife Management Programme, the communities have ratified their legal rights to protect Mount Waugareame Conservation Area of 2603 hectares.

 “The laws are our own and for it to be recognized by surrounding communities and the government body gives us pride.” said Mr. Peter Siune, one of the elders in the Wamiufa Tribe. “We are very much happy for the signing of agreement among our clans for the established conservation area," he added.

Last month, 8 clans, representing 892 people who traditionally own 3,500 ha of montane rainforest in the Bismarck Forest Corridor, formally agreed to create a community conservation area by signing a conservation deed. The Conservation Deed is a legally binding agreement that aims at regulating the use of wildlife and natural resources for the benefit of the clans' livelihoods. It made the area the largest community-conserved area of the Bismarck Forest Corridor.

The ceremony was a magnificent cultural event witnessed by over 1500 people. International donors, government, partner organizations, media, general visitors, and most importantly the communities leading the effort,  felt inspired by this milestone achievement.

Le SWM Programme a facilité le premier acte de conservation dans le corridor forestier de Bismarck, en Papouasie-Nouvelle-Guinée.

Le mois dernier, 8 clans, représentant 892 personnes possèdant traditionnellement 3 500 ha de forêt tropicale montagnarde dans le corridor forestier de Bismarck, ont officiellement accepté de créer une zone de conservation communautaire en signant un acte de conservation. L'acte de conservation est un accord juridiquement contraignant visant à réglementer l'utilisation de la faune sauvage et des ressources naturelles essentiels aux moyens d’existence des membres des clans. La signature de cet acte a fait de cette zone la plus grande zone de conservation communautaire du corridor forestier de Bismarck.

La cérémonie, un événement culturel grandiose, a attiré plus de 1500 personnes. Les bailleurs de fonds internationaux, le gouvernement, les organisations partenaires, les médias, les visiteurs et, surtout, les communautés à l'origine de cet effort, se sont sentis inspirés par cet accomplissement remarquable.
