Papua New Guinea
Papua New Guinea occupies the eastern part of the world’s second largest island and is prey to volcanic activity earthquakes and tidal waves. Linguistically it is the world’s most diverse country with more than 700 native tongues.
Some 80% of Papua New Guinea’s people live in rural areas with few or no facilities.
Many tribes in the isolated mountainous interior have little contact with each other let alone with the outside world and live within a non-monetarised economy dependent on subsistence agriculture.
