Integrated land-use potential for food security: a community experience

Integrated land-use potential for food security: a community experience

Food security for Papua New Guinea Proceedings of the Papua New Guinea Food and Nutrition 2000 Conference, PNG University of Technology, Lae, Papua New Guinea, 26-30 June 2000: 291-295

This paper discusses the experiences of 7 villages in the Sohe-Tirokave area of Kainantu, Eastern Highlands Province, Papua New Guinea, which have had food shortages at different intervals of time during 1975-2000. Communities within the area are very reliant on subsistence farming and forest products for their livelihood. Several key factors were found to have contributed to the food shortages over the last 24 years.
