The map shows the global distribution of habitat suitability for cold water corals found deeper than 50m. The map was compiled by MACBIO for the bioregions workshop 2018.
Material compiled by MACBIO on Marine ecosystem service valuation (MESV) in general and on MESV performed for Solomon Islands in 2015.
Marine ecosystem service valuation refers to the process of quantifying the human benefits of marine ecosystems in monetary units. Economic value is typically calculated as the gross value of an activity or product, minus costs, such as the cost of boats, nets, and wages for a fishing fleet.
Arnavon Community Marine Conservation Area (ACMCA) was first established in 1995 and aims to conserve all species inhabiting the Arnavon Islands. Within the project MACBIO ACMCA was one of the focus areas. Analysis and lessons learned are summarised in this dataset. (2017)
As one step in Marine Spatial Planning the MACBIO project developed bioregions, or the classification of the marine environment into spatial units that host similar biota across the South West Pacific. Based on a scientific, technical process draft bioregions were developed and discussed and confirmed during a workshop in February 2018 resulting in the report on Bioregions at national scale for the Solomon Islands.

The preliminary report on "Food Security in Solomon Islands: A survey of Honiara central market (HCM)" is an important contribution to understanding the role of the HCM in both linking rural and urban economies, especially with respect to the roles of women, as well as providing data on produce source, volume and dispersion of fresh agricultural produce throughout the greater Honiara area.
Data on tuna catch and by-catch provided to the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Commission. Data span the period 2013-2017.
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

Land use planning assessments is important in that it visualizes landscape and environment features of sites including soils and population pressure on the use of land. Helps decision making at multiple levels in projects planning: at the national, provincial, constituency, ward, community and tribal levels, corresponding to the levels of governance at which decisions about land use are formalized.
The purpose of the survey was to conduct land use Farm Planning assessment of registered lands LR 174, 176, 177 Gozoruru on land scape scoping methods in using satellite imageries, GPS, Soil survey, land suitability
A GIS Remote Sensing mapping on Rhinoceros beetle infested location spread in Malaita Province Solomon Islands. This mapping activity helps Ministry of Agriculture for decision making to fight or control the spread of the dangerous beetle.
The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants is an international treaty that requires Parties to phase-out and eliminate the production and use of the most persistent and toxic chemicals that have adverse impacts on human health and the environment.
Solomon Islands acceded to the Convention on 28 July 2004. Under Article 7 of the Convention, the Solomon Islands Government (SIG) is required to develop and endeavour to implement a National Implementation Plan (NIP), outlining how its obligations under the Convention will be met.
Under the MESCAL project, the objectives of this assessment are to;
* Improve understanding of mangrove ecosystem functions, values, key threats, and processes at a local and regional scale;
* Provide a standardized method to assess shoreline mangrove condition and change over time;
* Generate community awareness of mangroves and encourage local environmental stewardship;
* Conduct a rapid and representative survey of fish and mobile crustacean assemblages;
