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).

The Solomon Islands planning meeting of the SPC/GIZ Regional Programme “Climate Protection through Forest Conservation in Pacific Island Countries” was held at the King Solomons Hotel, Honiara, from 29 – 30 June 2011.

The report documents the following:

  1. an overview of REDD+ initiatives in the Solomon Islands
  2. stakeholder relationships in terms of REDD+
  3. assessment of REDD+ needs and priorities for the country
  4. potential REDD+ pilot sites and feasible Project activities as identified by participants
  5. recommendations for the regional REDD+ information portal currently proposed under the project.

During the period 2000 – 2013, 1,998 ha or 154 ha/year were deforested on Choiseul, equalling about 0.65 % of the total forest area in 2010 (307,701ha). This is the result of the analysis of remote sensing data from 2000, 2010 and 2013. The report explains the methodology applied and sources of potential errors within the analysis, such as cloud cover and accuracy of available data. However, it is a valuable first step towards developing a methodology for a national deforestation baseline in Solomon Islands.
