The Sekesu – Sisapi Landowner Group Incorporated initially planned to use this PNG government lease back business license to tap into the carbon credit market, but this did not work out; SABL land-lease agreements are very controversial legal constructions that were and are used to facilitate logging and other commercial activities which have often proved to be fraudulent. Many have now been cancelled by the PNG government.
Together with the Sekesu – Sisapi clans we are doing something truly innovative and unique; using a SABL to save their forests.
The circa 9,000 people living on the border of the 54,000 hectares included in this SABL are anxious to create an alternative to subsistence living that does not require them to sacrifice their forests. A number of years ago, illegal loggers invaded the southern part of their lands. Sekesu – Sisapi clan members successfully put a stop to that. To this day, they have kept their forests intact just as their ancestors have done over thousands of years, but the threat of logging is ever-present. Additionally, benefits from logging, mining and industrial palm oil plantations reach only very few; and the vast majority of PNG landowner clans remain extremely poor and do not receive anything in return for the destruction of their natural resources.

Logging nearby is commencing. In addition, EXXON-MOBIL gas pipeline near the boundary of the ECOSHARE lease is serving foreign banks, investors and down stream buyers in Japan, Taiwan and China; they will be invited to purchase ECOSHARE Certificates to help off-set pollution and support security.
