The FRL proposed by Papua New Guinea covers the activities “reducing emissions from deforestation”, “reducing emissions from forest degradation” and “enhancement of forest carbon stocks”, which are among the activities included in decision 1/CP.16, paragraph 70. In its submission, Papua New Guinea has developed a national FRL for the period 2014–2018 with values corresponding to 43,369,737 (2014), 45,049,344 (2015), 46,728,951 (2016), 48,408,557 (2017) and 50,088,164 (2018) tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent per year. The assessment team notes that the data and information used by Papua New Guinea in constructing its FRL are mostly transparent and complete and in overall accordance with the guidelines contained in the annex to decision 12/CP.17. This report contains the assessed FRL and a few areas identified by the assessment team for further technical improvement, according to the scope of the technical assessment in the annex to decision 13/CP.19.
