Climate Change

Small islands, whether located in the tropics or higher latitudes, have characteristics which make them especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change, sea-level rise, and extreme events (very high confidence) ♦  Sea-level rise is expected to exacerbate inundation, storm surge, erosion and other coastal hazards, thus threatening vital infrastructure, settlements and facilities that support the livelihood of island communities (very high confidence). ♦  There is strong evidence that under most climate change scenarios, water resources in small islands are likely to be seriously compromised (very high confidence). ♦  It is very likely that subsistence and commercial agriculture on small islands will be adversely affected by climate change (high confidence).

This study undertaken in Choiseul Province, Solomon Islands, places the community at the centre for assessing vulnerability to climate change. The report is primarily based on information gathered through a series of facilitated workshops, observations and recorded data in 27 communities in the province. The information is supported through analysis of literature, including scientific research and relevant government legislation, that relate to issues raised in the Choiseul communities.

Based on the findings of the assessment, a suite of adaptation options are recommended addressing land, coastal, community and sea-based vulnerabilities.
