  • PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Papua New Guinea (PNG) has one of the most significant areas of largely-intact tropical forest in the world, although these forests appear to be facing acute and imminent threats. The Papua New Guinea Forest Authority (PNGFA) estimates that approximately 80 per cent of the total area of the country is covered by natural forests, of which 60 per cent are considered intact forests.

Approximately 10 per cent of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are caused by land-use change and, in particular, the destruction of tropical forests. Slowing deforestation and forest degradation are a likely cost effective way of reducing carbon emissions compared to other mitigation strategies, such as curbing emissions from power stations. Since 2005, PNG has been at the forefront of intergovernmental negotiations under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to develop an international mechanism to compensate developing countries for reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+). To be eligible to receive results-based finance for REDD+ results-based actions under the UNFCCC, PNG will have to develop the following elements:

  • A National Strategy or Action Plan;
  • A national forest reference emission level and/or forest reference level;
  • A robust and transparent national forest monitoring system for the monitoring and reporting of the REDD + activities;
  • A system for providing information on how environmental, governance and social safeguards are addressed and respected throughout the implementation of REDD+ activities while respecting sovereignty.

The Government of Papua New Guinea (GoPNG) is receiving international support from a number of bilateral and multilateral sources to prepare the country for implementing REDD+ under the UNFCCC, including through readiness support from the World Bank’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF). FCPF REDD+ Readiness Project is working closely with the GoPNG’s Climate Change and Development Authority (CCDA), the agency in PNG responsible for coordination of all climate change activities including the implementation of REDD+. To support the smooth implementation of REDD+ in PNG there is a need to raise public awareness about the importance of forests and the need for REDD+ as part of the solution to addressing Climate Change.

In this regard, FCPF REDD+ Readiness project is seeking a qualified media outlet to produce a short documentary film to help raise public awareness about climate change and key issues relating to reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in PNG.

 

  • SCOPE OF WORK

The objective of this assignment is to produce a short documentary film (approximately 7 minutes in duration) that will contribute to raising public awareness about climate change and efforts to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in PNG.

The documentary will focus on presenting, through a human-interest story format, real case study example/s that highlight the impacts of deforestation and forest degradation on forest-dependent communities in PNG.

The case study examples must be approved by CCDA and FCPF REDD+ Readiness Project prior to filming and should highlight the impact of the main drivers of deforestation and forest degradation in PNG as outlined in PNG’s National REDD+ Strategy. Case study examples will be taken from the provinces of West Sepik and East New Britain.

The Contractor will work closely with the designated CCDA focal point and the FCPF REDD+ Readiness project management unit’s communications officer to better understand the project objectives and to ensure that the products will be delivered within the agreed timeline and an agreed quality.
