Morobe Development Foundation Inc. is a not-for-profit organization based in Papua New Guinea and was established to promote sustainable community development initiatives and thereby address several exigent issues – ranging from environmental conservation to women's rights – that are hindering the progress of the country. A few of our ongoing projects focus on applications of various state-of-the-art technologies (such as remote sensing and machine learning) for monitoring forest biomass, tracking land use, and land change patterns, evaluating climate change impacts, and conserving sea turtle habitats.

Further, this assignment will also support MDF to acquire grants to implement projects in areas of environmental conservation and sustainability (where MDF has undertaken several projects in the past couple of years) and the takeaways from these globally focused endeavors would be streamlined to serve the needs of PNG communities. Some of our recent publications can be found here:
