This study is focused on the community as the central point of measuring vulnerability to climate change in Choiseul province. It is primarily based on information gathered through a series of facilitated workshops, observations and recorded data.
The context for climate change adaptation in Solomon Islands is established through an analysis of governance and relevant legislative frameworks at the national level. Subsequently, governance, economic development, social services, natural resources and climate of Choiseul Province are examined. The report then discusses the factors that affect people’s resilience to the impacts of climate change at the community level.
Based on the findings of this assessment, a suite of adaptation options is recommended, addressing land, coastal, community and sea-based vulnerabilities. The report concludes that in order to develop an effective adaptation response, a multi-sectoral and multi-partner approach is required to adequately address the complexity of factors contributing to the people of Choiseul’s vulnerability and capacity to adapt to the effects of climate change.
