Papua New Guinea faced a true sustainability dilemma. 50,000 people had been affected by river contamination from a gold and copper mine. At the time the mine produced 20% of the country’s gross domestic product but it had disrupted traditional food security systems webs by putting 90,000 tons of daily rock waste and tailings into the local river.
The Partner facilitated 18 months of challenging meetings with delegates from the nine affected river regions.
The discussions concluded with a Memorandum of Agreement that provided impacted communities with US $350 million in funds, projects, and services.
