World Environment Day 2022

Australia is committed to providing sustainable solutions to help PNG reach the national goal of connecting 70% of the country to electricity by 2030.

Australia, through our #PNGAusPartnership, is committed to providing sustainable solutions for PNG’s national electrification, under the Papua New Guinea Electrification Partnership – PEP. A key component of this is our Pawarim Komuniti Grants program.

Pawarim Komuniti works to provide access to clean energy services in rural and remote communities across PNG, through the provision of solar-kits to households, supporting our shared goal of connecting 70% of the country to clean electricity by 2030.

So far, more than 8,996 households have benefitted across Pawarim’s Komuniti’s projects in Northern, Western, West Sepik, West New Britain and Morobe Provinces – with many more to come in the future.

To celebrate World Environment Day today, check out this video to learn more about the work of Pawarim Komuniti and celebrate the ways we are working in partnership to provide sustainable, clean and green solutions to PNG’s electrification needs!

For this years’ World Environment Day, watch this video to find out more about Pawarim Komuniti and electrification in PNG.
