Paul Nelson


Oil palm is the most important crop in PNG in terms of export income (over K1,000 million in 2008), directly supporting approximately 18,600 registered smallholder families and an estimated 200,000 people, and driving the cash economies of the four provinces in which it is grown. In these provinces the future productivity of oil palm and other crops, future food security, integrity of surrounding ecosystems and consequent community wellbeing all rely on environmentally sustainable management of oil palm.
