Definitely the people in Western Province from the length and breadth continue to suffer.

PNGSDP funds buildings, airplanes, houses, boats but is not addressing the health and social issues as a direct consequence of the population and degradation of water and land.

Western Province people do not need barramandi farms! Do they not need planes! They need to live and everything else will fall into place.

Meanwhile, the people who really care about the environmental damage done by the tailings from the Ok Tedi mine, who want to improve the lives of the people of the Fly River area, seem to be left out of the picture.

Surely the money in the PNGSDP fund could go a long way to solving some of the problems that the mine created.
