Dataset containing all published State of Environment Reports for Solomon Islands in the previous years and the current draft 2018.
Dataset that provides a direct link to Solomon Island's data hosted on the GBIF website / records.
A 2016 review of land use and land use change provided summaries of major land uses as a percentage of the total Solomon Islands land area; as reflected in the data attached.
The Forest and land use composition of the Solomon Islands study in 2016, shows 7.77% of the total land area was ‘cropland’. Cropland itself comprises 2176 square kilometres. 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.
In 2009, from those households that were involved in growing crops, most grew vegetables and food crops (71%), followed by betel nut (44%), coconut/copra (32%), cocoa (26%), flowers (14%), timber (10%), tobacco (9%), and other crops (7%)
Dataset pertaining to a record of annual tree cover loss in the Solomon Islands from 2001 - 2017. The independent Global Forest Watch reported a total loss of tree cover (>30% crown cover) in the Solomon Islands of 144,000 ha between 2001-2017. The country lost 144kha of tree cover, equivalent to a 5.2% decrease since 2000, and 16.7Mt of CO₂ emissions.

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.

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
