Resilience of Communities to Climate Change Adaptation

Project Summary

As a Least Developed Country, Solomon Islands is one of the most vulnerable countries to the predicted impacts of climate change. The Solomon Islands National Adaptation Program of Action (NAPA) to address the effects of climate change (2009) identified agriculture and food security as one of the most vulnerable sectors requiring urgent attention. This project, locally know as ‘Strongem Woka lo Community fo Kaikai (SWoCK), addresses the NAPA priority and will contribute to enhancing resilience of the agriculture sector to maintain and improve food security in the country. The project is funded by the Kyoto Adaptation Fund (AF).

What are the project’s goals?

The objective of the project is to strengthen ability of communities in Solomon Islands to make informed 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 (outcomes); 1) Promote and pilot  community-adaptation activities enhancing food security and livelihood resilience in pilot communities in at least 3 selected regions; 2) Strengthen institutions and adjusted national and sub-national policies related to governing agriculture  in the context of a range of climate change futures; and 3) Foster the generation and spread of relevant knowledge for assisting decision-making at the community and policy-formulation level.
