PNG-Australia Joint Declaration on the Preservation of the Kokoda Track Region
Summary of publication
On 10 September 2015, Australian and Papua New Guinean Prime Ministers signed a declaration on the preservation of the Kokoda Track Region. This declaration extends beyond 2015, making it an enduring partnership which recognises the significance of the Track and the region. Australia also committed a further $25 million over five years to the Kokoda Initiative, bringing our total support to $65 million since 2008. This is a true partnership between Australia and PNG to protect the Kokoda Track, Brown River Catchment and Owen Stanley Ranges while improving the lives of the people living along the Track.
