Project background and context

Traditional agricultural practices that communities rely on in the Solomon Islands have been placed under increasing pressure from emerging climate change risks. The preferred solution is to support communities to better manage and adapt to climate change pressures in the context of food security through community based adaptation.

 The project will strengthen ability of communities in Solomon Islands to make informed 13 decisions and manage likely climate change driven pressures on food production and management systems. In particular, the project will lead to the following key results:

• Adaptive capacity of communities enhanced to climate change risks in agriculture sector in 3 target regions;
 
• Strengthened institutions and adjusted national and sub-national policies related to governing agriculture in the context of a range of climate change futures; and
 
• Fostered the generation and spread of relevant knowledge for assisting decision-making at the community and policy-formulation level.
