Prioritizing Investments in Land-based Climate Mitigation in Papua New Guinea

The Papua New Guinea (PNG) geospatial companion complements PNG’s Sustainable Landscapes Opportunities Analysis (SLOA), developed in 2020 with the support of USAID’s Productive Landscapes activity (ProLand). SLOA analyses are designed to aid USAID Missions in prioritizing climate mitigation programming and co-benefits for highest land-based mitigation impact.

The SLOA Geospatial Companion was created to assist USAID and partners in leveraging the SLOA findings for spatial planning. The SLOA datasets and maps, along with the complementary datasets included, can be used to further analyze and interpret the findings, and to update findings and existing datasets as needed.
