Extractions: Evangelical Bible Mission International GlennsSchwartz@wmausa.org. INTRODUCTION Let me begin this paper by introducing myself and the missionary organization I represent. I was born in the Bahamas to missionary parents who were involved in church planting on Andros Island. In 1945, when I was two years of age, we moved to Haiti, where I spent the next six years of my boyhood, learning the Haitian Creole and English languages simultaneously. In 1958, as a teenager, I went with my father to New Guinea and spent the next five years serving as a "teenage missionary" in that very primitive country. During this time I learned three tribal languages besides the Pidgin English trade language. As an adult I went back to serve several more terms in Papua New Guinea, spending a total of 20 years there. The Evangelical Bible Mission, Inc., DBA, EBM International, (EBM) for short, was founded by my father, G.T. Bustin, in 1940. It started out as

Extractions: Papua New Guinea 'PNG' is located just north of Australia in the Asia-Pacific corridor next to Indonesia. PNG is a developing country rich in natural resources home to a relatively small population of 5.17 million. Since 1997, economic and social conditions have been quite turbulent and challenging at times as Papua New Guinea's economy has technically entered a depression during this time frame. Their national currency, the 'kina' has experienced steady depreciation versus the USD since the government decided to float the currency in 1995. POLITICS: independence in 1975, previous to this date Australia administered Papua New Guinea. There is a sad history of political violence within PNG more recently ending in 1997 after a 9-year secessionist revolt which claimed 20,000 lives. Again during the June 2002 elections, 30 people were killed in political violence. The election outcome resulted in former Prime Minister Sir Michael Somare, the founding father of modern Papua New Guinea of the National Alliance party regaining power and Prime Minister Sir Mekere Morauta of The People's Democratic Movement is now the official opposition. Political risk overall is high as further risk is encountered within the military as mutinies have taken place in protest to defense spending cut backs. In Bougainville, Papua New Guinea in 1988, civil war broke out over ownerhsip of the Giant mine which was a major contributor to PNG's economy. A cease fire was declared in 2001 after thousands have been killed in fighting.

Extractions: The Adelbert project area encompasses approximately 965 square miles of the western Adelbert Mountains and lies about 15.5 miles northwest of Madang Township on the north coast of New Guinea. Its topography is mostly mountainous with steep dissecting valleys, which at lower altitudes grade into broader riverbeds. The area is subject to frequent, though moderate seismic activity. Flora and Fauna This geographically young region is remarkably diverse with an estimated 15,000 to 20,000 species of vascular plants. In 1999 the Conservancy conducted a partial botanical assessment of the area and identified nine new plant species (two of which were named for Consevancy scientists). The Adelbert Mountains are home to more than 700 species of birds, including 38 of the worlds 43 species of bird of paradise, the lesser and magnificent birds of paradise among them. The rare fire-maned bowerbird also makes its home in the area, and can be found nowhere else on Earth. Tree kangaroos, giant bandicoots, alpine wallabies and critically endangered bougainville monkey-faced flying foxes all roam the regions strikingly rich habitat.

Extractions: Current and Upcoming Events This award recognizes employees and volunteers at all levels of the organization who exemplify the "One Conservancy" value. Nominees will have made exemplary contributions to the Conservancy beyond the nominee's job description, and outside the nominee's own program or functional area. Audrey Benedict Audrey Benedict has served on the Colorado Board of Trustees for seven years. Recognizing the tremendous mutual value that working globally would provide, five years ago Audrey made a plea to the board and staff of the Colorado chapter to focus some of their efforts globally. As a result, the chapter created the "International Committee," which Audrey chaired. Under her leadership, the Colorado Program built partnerships with the Conservancy's country programs in Ecuador, Mexico and Chile and agreed to help fundraise for each of these countries. Audrey and her husband, Jim, have together donated close to $70,000 to the Conservancy's Ecuador Country Program. Because of the inspiration that Audrey Benedict provided, the Colorado Chapter has been able to expand and significantly support conservation programs in the Caribbean, Canada, Mexico, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia, and Papua New Guinea. As if that weren't enough, Audrey has been instrumental in developing and leading many of the naturalist workshops that are currently in their third year at the Medano-Zapata Ranch in Colorado's San Luis Valley.

Extractions: Papua New Guinea lies just south of the equator, approximately 150 kilometres north of Australia. The climate is generally warm with a 'wet' and 'dry' season, the timings of which vary from one part of the country to another. The wettest months for most regions are November to March but rain falls mainly in the evenings and rarely disrupts daily activities. Temperatures around the coastal areas are reasonably stable and vary between 25 and 30 degrees Celsius. The Highlands are cooler and temperatures can fall dramatically at night. COUNTRY DESCRIPTION: Papua New Guinea is a parliamentary democracy and a member of the British Commonwealth. The country consists of the eastern half of New Guinea Island, the Bismarck Archipelago, the D'Entrecasteaux Islands, the Louisiade Archipelago, and the islands of Buka and Bougainville. Good tourist facilities exist in the capital of Port Moresby and in major towns such as Lae and Madang. The quality of tourist facilities in other areas varies and may be below U.S. standards, particularly in remote areas. Crime is a serious concern throughout Papua New Guinea (see paragraph on crime below). ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: A valid passport, onward/return ticket, and proof of sufficient funds for the intended visit are required. Tourist visas are required for stays up to 60 days. (Visas are issued upon arrival at Jacksons International Airport in Port Moresby). Business visas require passport validity of at least one year from the date the visa is issued, two application forms, two photos, a company letter, biographic data, a recent annual report of the parent company and a fee for multiple entries. An AIDS test is required for work and residency permits (U.S. test accepted).

Extractions: Many phrases have been used to describe Papua New Guinea: Land of the unexpected; Land of a Thousand Cultures; the Last Unknown, but none of these can quite prepare visitors for the stunning diversity of this breath-taking country. Papua New Guinea is a land of amazing variety; nowhere else will you find lush tropical rainforest, pure white sandy beaches, cool misty highlands, balmy desert islands, traditional culture unchanged for thousands of years and modern recreational facilities in such close proximity and all so easily accessible from Australia, the South Pacific, Asia and the rest of the world. Located just south of the Equator, mainland Papua New Guinea is divided by the rugged Owen Stanley Mountain Range, with peaks over 4000 m high. These mountains provide the source for mighty rivers - among them the Fly and the Sepik which wind their way through spectacular fertile landscapes on their journey to the sea, where the coastline is scattered with islands, atolls and coral reefs. With every different landscape you will discover many different cultures, which in many cases have remained unchanged for thousands of years. It is quite surprising how the artefacts, traditional dress, styles of living, music and dance are so specific to particular areas, with very little overlap from one region to another. And for the budding linguist, Papua New Guinea has over 700 distinct languages to choose from.

Its chief exports are copra, coffee, rubber, plywood, timber, and gold. Sawmilling, brewing, tobacco processing, and the manufacture of handicrafts and concrete are the principal industries. The area fishing and diving are spectacular! Port Moresby sprawls along coastal bays and hillsides; the original Motuan settlement village, Hanuabada, is located close to the city center, which lies on a peninsula at the entrance to Fairfax Harbor. Close at hand is Paga Hill, a popular spot to catch a great view, and the now infamous World War Two Kokoda Trail lies a short trip from the capital. You'll want to lie in the sun at Ela Beach and pick up fresh tropical fruit and vegetables at the bustling Koki Markets. Port Moresby is also the site of government offices, the territorial museum, the University of Papua New Guinea (1965), the Institute of National Affairs, and sports facilities.

Extractions: Country: Papua New Guinea Context The government of Papau New Guinea (PNG) has demonstrated a strong commitment to overcoming some of the problems arising from an over-centralization of planning and management. In 1995, two important decisions were made by the government. First, a National Planning Office was established, separating planning from finance and second, an organic law was enacted which delegated substantial economic and financial authority to the provincial and the district level. Each of these sub-national entities have now been vested with substantial resource mobilization and spending autonomy and are now responsible for all rural development activities, public health, education, and infrastructure. The government requested that UNDP be the lead donor in reforming the national planning system as well as expanding an ongoing project to strengthen the necessary decentralized financial management. In this regard, UNDP in cooperation with government counterparts is supporting a project entitled "Strengthening The National and Decentralized Planning System". The overall development objective of the project is to "create the capacity in PNG for effective decentralized planning and for developing national strategies and plans that guide development within well-articulated national policies for sustainable development.
