The Solomon Islands State of Environment (SoE) Report presents an overview across seven thematic areas:
Culture and Heritage, Atmosphere and Climate, Coastal and Marine, Freshwater Resources, Land, Biodiversity
and Built Environment. The report uses the ‘Drivers, Pressures, State, Impact and Response’ (DPSIR) model
to describe the environment. As far as possible the report is based on quantitative data relating to the state of
the environment, supplemented by stakeholder input to describe causal relationships and environmental effects.
The report presents:

* A description of key drivers and pressures on the environment

* An assessment of the current state of the environment

* A description of current responses and future recommendations for each thematic area

The intention is for the outcomes and recommendations to be put into action through the 2019 National Environmental Management Strategy (NEMS).
