There's a carbon rush currently going on in the #Pacific. All sorts of shady characters are being drawn to countries such as #PNG in search of striking gold in the form of 'green' and 'blue' carbon offsets generated by the regions vast forests and oceans...孝
The sudden demand for carbon credits appears to be at least partly due to the Australian government's continuing support for the gas industry, and the need for cheap carbon offsets to greenwash their image and claim #NetZero emissions.
The predatory behaviour of some #carbon #offset project developers in the Pacific is an inevitable consequence of countries and companies scrambling to buy cheap offsets instead of leaving fossil fuels in the ground or making real reductions in their carbon emissions.

NEW RESEARCH:

-- Vaccinating the Pacific --

By @AlexandreDayant - projecting #Covid19 vaccination rates and timelines for 14 countries across the Pacific Islands region.

pacificvaccination.lowyinstitute.org
The research reveals a region divided. Countries in the Northern Pacific have benefitted from the United States' vaccine rollout, and small island nations have been quick to take advantage of supply to reach high coverage rates.
But countries in Melanesia are lagging behind, with #SolomonIslands, #Vanuatu and Papua New Guinea expected to reach less than 20 percent of their population by the end of 2022. #PNG is projected to reach only 35 percent coverage by 2026.

Great to see @anmfvic here in support of human beings who should not have been locked up in the first place.

Guys had symptoms and were sick for a long time before action was taken. One of the first guys tested positive was previously at the Kangaroo Point detention centre in Brisbane begging to be in a safe place when one of the guards tested positive there last year.

Thread....

From the Government that brought you Paladin's beach shack on Kangaroo Island, this was the Pacific International Hospital's clinic on Manus Island that the Australian Govt paid $21.5million for, for 'Comprehensive Health Services'
The new Pacific International Hospital contract that started out at $12,781,783.21 in July 2019 has ballooned to $106,526,285.92 and has just had its contract extended another 6 months and amended a further $10,891,766.00...there are only 125 refugees left in Papua New Guinea.
Then we have JDA Wokman/Applus PNG They're contracted for "Settlement Services." Their original contract value was for $6,123,458.02. It is now worth $139,437,000.00. It too was extended a further 6 months and amended a further $17,857,000.00. Again, that is for 125 refugees.

On US based academics excited about "getting back to the field" - I miss my family, colleagues, and friends in #PNG so much right now it hurts, because this week is basically when I have left for PNG every year, for the past 20+ years, for the summer months. 1/
I don't think about PNG as "the field" anymore at all. It is where half my heart lives. And not going in 2020 and now not going in 2021 has hollowed out my sense of self and work and life and connection. I miss @JohnAINI2 so much I physically hurt. 2/
I missed MS Kela's and Maimai C's funerals and I won't see my extraordinary nieces and nephews for another year. I won't visit places John and I work and I won't see the amazing work that all the people there have been doing around Indigenous land/sea sovereignty in 2021. 3/

#China #PapuaNewguinea #PNG #Bejing #DaruIsland #fishing

China's Ministry of Commerce has announced thatFujian Zhonghong Fishery Companyhas signed a memorandum of understanding with the Papua New Guinea Government
to build a $204 million "comprehensive multi-functional fishery industrial park" on the island of Daru under itsBelt and Road Initiative. Daru is one of the few Torres Strait Islands that are governed by Papua New Guinea rather than Australia.
Former PNG government adviser Jeffrey Wall said it was a lot of money to spend in a small community not known for commercial fish stocks. For Australia and the USA the Daru island agreement between PNG and China is a threat as the Daru islands are not even 200KM away.

IMF: Partial global rebound to 5.8% in 2021 assumes the #pandemic fades in the 2nd half of 2020, & that policy actions taken by countries are effective in preventing widespread firm bankruptcies, extended job losses, & system-wide financial strains. #WEO ow.ly/ZLYi50zccSJ

This week was a #darkweek for unis in #PNG. Tuesday 1,000 days since the infamous incident on 8 June 2016 when police fired hundreds of life rounds at peacefully protesting students demanding PM not put himself above the law. No promised inquiry, nobody charged #whogavetheorder
@ScholarsAtRisk is keeping the issue of shooting at #UPNG students on 8 June 2016 alive, because it is a rare occurrence in a supposed democracy. Listen to my interview last year for ABC abc.net.au/radio-australi #whogavetheorder #darkweek
#UPNG and #UNITECH Student Representative Councils still suspended indefinitely. The students voice has been silenced, and the government can sleep easy knowing no civil society group will threaten its hold on power. Here is the video they made:

1/12 #APEC media: Australia paid many $Billions to private companies #IHMS & #PIH to provide limited medical services to #Manus refugees for 5+ years. Nothing to upgrade Manus Island Lorengau Hospital thats a run-down, little provincial hospital servicing an entire community.
2/12 When #Manus refugees need X-rays, scans, dental treatment, surgery, emergency services, in-patient or out-of-hours services, they are sent to #Lorengau Hospital. This strains the already overburdened island health service. #APEC has triggered a Manus health services crisis.
3/12 While 5 critically ill refugees remain, PIH hospital Port Moresby discharged all PNG patients & cancelled dozens of sick refugees treatment. PIH/Australia refugee contract conflicts with preferred #APEC provider role. Dozens of sick refugees were forced to return to #Manus.

1/4 14 men were forced from Port Moresby back to #Manus today by police & immigration. We believe 50 sick men total will go back because PIH Hospital has a contract to be health provider to APEC. PIH is sending us back because of contract to treat APEC delegates & workers.
2/4 #JDA said sick men may return to Pom from #Manus & be treated by #PIH in a month. We have also been told that there will be no medical treatment in Port Moresby for us until next year.
3/4 We are suffering mentally very much. It is 1 year since the #Manus Lombrum Blockade. We suffered trauma because of the cruelty & attacks upon us. Many men feel no hope. 3 men tried to kill themselves in last 24 hours. We saved them.
