Description of Intervention

This project is implementing the Year 3 Activities of the Coral Triangle Support Programme (CTSP) in Solomon Islands. The main activity is the development and piloting of a Vulnerability and Adaptation (VandA) Assessment for use by rural communities in Solomon Islands as part of community based resource management (CBRM).

Problems to be Addressed

Climate and community-based resource management


To develop a VandA Assessment tool as part of CBRM that will be adopted by National/provincial governments for use in communities


• To develop a national strategy and framework for CBRM with GERUSA as a model site, and using lessons from GERUSA begin a phased implementation in priority provinces at the community, province and national level;
• To design and develop Capacity Building and institutional support strategy for CBRM at community, province and national level. and develop appropriate training guides and materials to support CBRM nationally;
• To undertake provincial and community-level rapid climate change vulnerability and adaptation assessment in priority provinces and GERUSA integration site; and
• To identify appropriate community-level adaptation strategies among communities in priority provinces (train WWF staff to undertake such an exercise in the Gizo integration site) and implement them at the GERUSA integration site.

How it fits into the EbA concept

Sustainable resource management through community-based approach in the face of climate change
