    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.

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.
