Under the Kokoda Initiative, the PNG and Australian governments will work with Track communities on the Sustainable Livelihoods Project.
Identifying potential economic benefit streams and improving the livelihoods of landowners and communities, including through tourism-related income generation, is an important objective of the PNG-Australia Joint Understanding on the Kokoda Track and Owen Stanley Ranges.
In mid 2009, a specialist team visited Track communities and engaged with trek operators to identify existing and potential opportunities for livelihoods projects and to develop a concept for a rural micro-business program along the Track corridor. A number of opportunities were identified and this work has resulted in the development of a micro-business support program which will be piloted from early 2010.
