Context
In 2016, Papua New Guinea became the first country to formally submit a national climate action plan under the Paris Accord, the agreement with the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Papua New Guinea's national climate-compatible development policy includes institutional capacity building, migration policy, solar farms, and mangrove rehabilitation. As government symbols, the Papua New Guinea flag and national emblem embody connections to nature. Both use an image of the Raggiana bird-of-paradise, the national bird, which clasps a traditional kundu drum on the emblem.
