Navunaram


Navunaram is located in the Gazelle District of East New Britain. The community is relatively close to Kokopo, only about a one hour drive inland. With two thousand inhabitants it is large enough to be its own ward. The community is further organized into five zones making it more manageable. Each zone has an elected councilor that is charged with managing the affairs of that zone and representing their interests at community-wide councilor meetings. The main road runs through the middle of the community, connecting it to both Kokopo and Rabaul. This is critical because Navunaram is an agriculturally based community meaning that it functions around the sale, export, and cultivation of crops.
