ANSAB provides its technical service in Papua New Guinea

ANSAB has started to provide its technical service for producing handmade paper in Papua New Guinea (PNG). The organization’s handmade paper technician Mr. Palden Sherpa left for PNG last week and has started a 45 days training for the local communities in PNG to make handmade paper in the country. The organization’s technical service to PNG came after ANSAB and CPL group, a leading retail / wholesale organization in PNG developed a partnership in 2010 for a fact finding mission in PNG to initiate pilot projects within local communities to conserve forest resources and maintain ecosystem services and make communities take steps to responsible harvesting of their natural resources. ANSAB will also be providing its expertise to CPL to identify enterprise options for communities and design interventions for community enterprises development and environmental conservation. ANSAB will also assist CPL to find markets for the finished products.
