From , 5:01 am on 8 May 2017

A Papua New Guinea scholar who has completed her PhD in New Zealand says her research on sustainability can help fill a gap in government policy back home.

Sangion Appiee-Tiu graduated last week from the University of Waikato where she has been the inaugural recipient of the Dr Zena Daysh Doctoral Fellowship in Sustainability.

Her PhD researched traditional ecological knowledge and sustainability with implications for developing a "policy framework for sustainability education in PNG".

She spoke to Johnny Blades about tapping into PNG's great heritage of traditional knowledges.
