The Solomon Islands are already experiencing the impacts of climate change and are vulnerable to further climatic changes. Climate change, population growth and movement to provincial centres will increase the need for water treatment, wastewater collection and new water sources. The Solomon Islands Government is initiating measures to enhance the country’s energy efficiency and decrease its reliance on fossil fuels through renewable energy. Solomon Islands Water Authority has not yet similarly assessed and prioritized implementation projects in energy efficiency and self-generation.
