PNG earthquake emergency

I was in Tari, in the PNG highlands, just three weeks ago researching a story on the social impacts there of the ExxonMobil PNG LNG. That story is still in production, due out late April, but meanwhile the landscape has changed dramatically and tragically. Here is a short story I filed in the aftermath for Fairfax. With roads and rivers blocked and broken, and resources projects out of action indefinitely, we’ve barely seen the edges of this humanitarian and economic disaster. Link here.
