The Solomon Islands National Waste Management and Pollution Control Strategy 2017-2026 is the country's roadmap for managing waste and controlling pollution in the natural environment for the next 10 years with the vision for clean, healthy and green happy isles. The strategy addresses 5 main waste streams: Solid Waste, Liquid Waste, Hazardous and Chemical Waste, Healthcare Waste and Electronic Waste.

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.

There is a lack of reliable information on the population status of saltwater crocodiles and the extent of human-crocodile conflict in the country. This report thus summarizes the results of a nationwide survey that aimed to fill these knowledge gaps.
This synthesis report provides an overview of the first seven steps involved to identify, prioritize, and implement ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) projects in Honiara, Solomon Islands, and is based on a detailed series of technical reports prepared for the PEBACC project by BMT WBM, in collaboration with Ecological Solutions Solomon Islands and the University of Queensland.
PEBACC - Pacific Ecosystems-based Adaptation to Climate Change - is a five year project funded by the German government and implemented by the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) to explore and promote ecosystem-based options for adapting to climate change. The overall intended outcome of the project is: Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) is integrated into development, climate change adaptation and natural resource management policy and planning processes in three Pacific island countries providing replicable models for other countries in the region.
There are laws which regulate the timber industry in the Solomon Islands. These laws aim to reduce some of the environmental and social impacts that can result from logging. This booklet aims to summarise some of these regulations, including some important aspects of the Code of Logging Practice, and is intended to help communities and logging companies to have a clear overview of the regulations that protect communities and the environment.
For the Ninth Pacific Islands Conference on Nature Conservation and Protected Areas December 2013, Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP) commissioned an assessment of the status of biodiversity and conservation in Oceania. This report assesses the overall state of conservation in Solomon Islands using 16 indicators.

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.
The NDS 2016-2035 maps out a strategic direction for the future development of Solomon Islands.
Solomon Islands is composed of almost 1000 islands and has the second longest coastline and the second largest Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) in the Pacific. These physical characteristics and the unique society and culture of the population are the basis of the fundamental relationship that Solomon Islanders have with the ocean. The Marine Atlas for the Solomon Islands compiles over a hundred datasets from countless data providers and for the first time makes marine and coastal information accessible and usable as data layers and as raw data.
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;
