Remote communities in Solomon Islands tackle climate change


Video (English with English Subtitles) - This video details how the community in Roviana, Solomon Islands, together with scientists and local organisations, worked with the Australian Government's Pacific Adaptation Strategy Assistance Program to adapt to climate change.

The Roviana region in the Western Province is particularly at risk from the impacts of climate change. Roviana communities, together with the Pacific Adaptation Strategy Assistance Program (PASAP) and local organisations, worked with the Australian Government's Pacific Adaptation Strategy Assistance Program to: map marine and coastal habitats and assess their vulnerability to climate change; assess health of coral reefs, seagrasses and mangroves, survey coral bleaching and disease; measure water quality and water flow into lagoons; document the health of coastal gardens and forests and identify issues affecting the adaptive capacity of people, and tangible ways through which to increase resilience.

The PASAP assisted 15 partner countries to assess their vulnerability to climate change and incorporate adaptive measures into planning and development.
