In 2016 the dominant crop type was mixed subsistence agriculture followed by coconut, mixed crops (including coconut overstory) and palm oil Cocoa and ‘other’ agriculture make up the remaining area under cultivation.

Dataset contains a combined monthly sea level records as observed from the year 1994 - 2018. It is well acknowledged that sea level rise is already affecting Solomon Island communities. The Solomon Islands Second National Communication cites satellite altimetry readings indicating that the country is experiencing sea-level rise at a rate of 8-10 mm per year. The monthly sea level data contains a relative sea level trend of –5.7 mm/year.
Dataset related to the population trend from 1931-2009. It can be seen that the population of the Solomon Islands has continuously increased and it is now more than five times the size it was in 1931.
Statistical records relating to the monetary measures of Solomon Islands total economic activities from the year 2007 - 2014 . The table shows that approximately 43% of GDP was derived a) agriculture forestry and fisheries and b) industry (including mining, water etc). Although the contribution of these sectors has decreased slightly since 2007 (43%), this shows the continuing importance of natural resources / ecosystem services in economic development. There is also potential future development in these sectors, for example in the field of offshore mining.
