 THE Department of Environment and Conservation will conduct a five-day workshop to review the 2010-13 PNG marine programme in Kokopo from today.

The programme was launched by former minister Benny Allen in 2010.

Organisers said the programme had five goals: seascape, eco-system approach to fisheries management, marine protection, climate change and threatened species. 

Representatives from the department, the 14 maritime provinces, National Fisheries Authority, Office of Climate Change and Development plus key organisations such as SeaWeb and WWF are attending.
