Village Development Trust (VDT) is an indigenous non-government organization that has been working in Papua New Guinea and throughout the South Pacific since 1990. It has become recognized as a leader in the fields of ecoforestry and conservation. Its work has evolved over this time to include a series of courses and workshops, professional field support services, education aids, and model projects that emphasize an integrated approach to the issues of conservation awareness, environmental protection, and the practical sustainable development of village resources.
