  • PacGeo - Pacific Spatial Data Infrastructure

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    PacGeo is an open access geospatial data repository for the Pacific Region providing premier geophysical, geodetic, and marine spatial data sets. Developed through collaboration between the GeoScience Division of Secretariat of the Pacific Community (GSD/SPC), University of Sydney, Geoscience Australia (GA), and GRID-Arendal. The development of PacGeo was combined with targeted training and capacity building activities conducted at the Pacific Maritime Boundary Working Group Meetings, held twice yearly at the University of Sydney and at other ad hoc events in the region.

  • 2015 Nutrition country profile: Solomon Islands

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    The 193 individual country profiles capture the status and progress of all UN Member States, and the 80+ indicators include a wealth of information on child, adolescent and adult anthropometry and nutritional status, in addition to intervention coverage, food supply, economics, and demography. This tool is particularly useful for nutrition champions at the country-level, as it presents a wide range of evidence needed to assess country progress in improving nutrition and nutrition-related outcomes.

  • Climate change, food security, and socioeconomic livelihood in Pacific Islands

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    Climate change projections internationally accepted as being reliable indicate that most countries in the Pacific region will suffer large-scale negative impacts from climate change. These impacts are likely to include elevated air and sea-surface temperatures, increasingly unpredictable rainfall patterns, rising sea levels, and intensification of extreme weather events such as tropical cyclones and El Niño-related droughts.

  • Choiseul Province climate change vulnerability and adaptation assessment report: Solomon Islands - securing the future of Lauru now

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    This report focuses on the community as the central point of measuring vulnerability to climate change in Choiseul Province of the Solomon Islands. It discusses the factors that affect people’s resilience to the impacts of climate change at the community level. Given the close connectivity of livelihoods and natural resources in the region, ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) approaches are deemed an appropriate adaptation response in Choiseul Province. The report recommends a number of adaptation options addressing land, coastal, community and sea-based vulnerabilities.

  • Climate change adaptation for coral triangle communities: a guide for vulnerability assessment and local early action planning (LEAP guide)

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    This comprehensive set of scientific and social instruments helps local governments and communities to assess their vulnerability to climate change and form their own climate change adaptation plans to address local conditions. So far it has been adopted in pilot sites in the Coral Triangle, such as the Nino Konis Santana National Park in Timor-Leste, Verde Island Passage in the Philippines, Kei Islands in Indonesia, the proposed Tun Mustapha Park in Malaysia, Kimbe Bay in Papua New Guinea, and Western Province in the Solomon Islands.

  • One planet to share: sustaining human progress in a changing climate

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:

    The Asia-Pacific Regional Human Development Report (APHDR) focuses on the need for the region to find ways to continue to grow economically, while reducing poverty and tackling climate change and environmental concerns. The report addresses climate challenges facing small island developing states (SIDS) in the region with special attention given to the least developed countries (LDCs), including Kiribati, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Timor-Leste, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.

  • Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment: Honiara, Solomon Islands

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Approach:

    The vulnerability and adaptation assessment for Honiara is to provide national and local government decision makers and community leaders with information relevant to defining their adaptation priorities and plans, with the view of eventually integrating this into their regular programmes and budgets. The vulnerability and adaptation assessment will also provide guidance in identifying where and what critical actions are needed to effectively manage the unavoidable impacts of climate change.

  • COMMUNITY RESILIENCE TO CLIMATE AND DISASTER RISK IN SOLOMON ISLANDS PROJECT

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    The development objective of the Community Resilience to Climate and Disaster Risk Project for Solomon Islands (CRISP) is to increase the capacity of selected rural communities to manage natural hazards and climate change risks. The project has four components. The first component, integration of climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) in government policies and operations objective is to support policy development, capacity building, and institutional strengthening aimed at integrating governance and operational processes for CCA and DRR.
