The Community Relations Manual and Landowner Compensation in PNG’s Mining and Petroleum Sector are major publications that support and assist those working in the community relations area in the PNG resource extractive industry.
In 2008, the Chamber supported the Valuer-General to produce the revised Valuer-General’s Compensation Schedule for Trees and Plants, All Regions in a book format for the first time. This Schedule is widely used in the mining and petroleum industry as a guide for determining compensation payable for destruction of vegetation cover.
In August 2011, during a community affairs workshop for industry employees, a session was dedicated to review the schedule. Comments and recommendations from the industry is currently being consolidated to present to the Valuer General.
The Chamber also produced a Compensation Schedule for Land Use and Land Damage, and Man Made Structures in the Mining and Petroleum Sectors. The industry is also reviewing this document.
