a time series data showing annual air temperature, 1994 - 2018
Extracted from the 2009 census, the report is related to population, urbanization and migration
a time series of monthly water temperature 1994 - 2018
Data indicating the proportion of mangroves (1.2%) in natural forest.
A time series data showing annual number of cyclones passing within 400km on Honiara. In the 41-year period between 1969 and 2010, 41 tropical cyclones passed within 400 km of Honiara, an average of one cyclone per season (Figure 3). Thenumber of cyclones varies widely from year to year, with none in some seasons but up to five in others. Over the period 1969–2010, cyclones occurred more frequently in El Niño years.
Data extracted from the PCCSP report, 2011
This Tuna Fishery Report Card provides high-level advice on the current status of Pacific tuna fisheries in relation to the goals, indicators and strategies adopted by Forum Leaders in 2015 in the Regional Roadmap for Sustainable Pacific Fisheries. The report card takes into account the work of the Taskforce on Increasing Economic Returns from Fisheries, which was established by the Forum Leaders to develop a programme that will deliver real results within 5 years. Economic indicators now reflect Taskforce-agreed targets.
his graph shows the profile of languages in Solomon Islands with respect to their status of language development versus language endangerment. Each individual language that has an entry for Solomon Islands is included in the profile. Adapted from https://www.ethnologue.com/profile/SB

The information presented here is based on two case study
sites in Malaita Province (Langalanga Lagoon and Maramasike
Passage). Research at these sites have been undertaken under the
CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural systems, through
the Mangrove Ecosystem for Climate Change and Livelihoods
project (Maramasike Passage) funded by the German Federal
Ministry for The Environment, Nature and Conservation and
Nuclear Safety (BMU) with support from IUCN and MECDM and
a project on Ecosystem Approaches to Fisheries Management in

The 2009 Census of Population and Housing was held on 22 November 2009 and is the fourth full national census completed in the country. This 2009 Census report provides an analysis about the population of the country and its social, demographic and housing characteristics.
Sharks and rays are facing increasing anthropogenic pressure globally, including in the Pacific. However, data on their status and biodiversity are lacking for many Pacific Large Ocean Island States. This study aimed to construct a species checklist for the sharks and rays occurring in the Solomon Islands, review the human interactions with these species, and present a synthesis of their conservation status.
The ‘drive hunting’ of dolphins has a long history in the Solomon Islands, specifically at the island of Malaita. In 2010, the most active village, Fanalei, suspended hunting in exchange for financial compensation from an international non-governmental organization but resumed hunting again in early 2013. This dataset hosts a report on a visit to Fanalei in March 2013 to document the species and number of dolphins killed in the renewed hunting.
The natural environment surrounding the Gold Ridge mine has been modified substantially and requires an ongoing monitoring program to ensure the ecosystem services of food and water for the local communities continue to be safe. This dataset hosts an article relating to a study that assessed the catchments surrounding the Gold Ridge gold mine (Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands) and found that extensive changes in river course, and water and sediment quality have occurred downstream of the gold mine since its development.
This report presents the final results of resource assessments conducted at fifteen sites to assess the status of sea cucumber stocks and the impact of existing management measures. Sea cucumber catch and export production quantities and values, and species composition were assessed to provide an understanding of fishing activities.
The shift towards Community Based Resource Management in Melanesia and Polynesia is unprecedented on a global scale and is the subject of this report.
CEPF is designed to safeguard Earth’s biologically richest yet threatened terrestrial regions, known
as biodiversity hotspots. CEPF is a joint initiative of l’Agence Française de Développement,
Conservation International, the European Union, the Global Environment Facility, the Government
of Japan and the World Bank. A fundamental goal is to ensure civil society plays a critical role in
achieving biodiversity conservation outcomes.
CEPF’s niche for investment in the East Melanesian Islands was formulated through a participatory
