Papua New Guinea (PNG) is a country endowed with both rich mineral and agricultural resources. When major resource extraction projects are developed, there can be significant impact on the agricultural livelihoods of the smallholder farming families. In this chapter we will analyse the impact of one agricultural development project which was initially developed for villagers displaced by the PNG Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) project in the Hides area of Hela Province. We use a case study of the food processing component of the project to focus on the gender and social issues that were identified and addressed through the action research process of the project.
