The SWM Programme facilitated the first Conservation Deed in the Bismarck Forest Corridor, in Papua New Guinea (French below)

28 September 2021

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.
