This contains 10 field reports of 10 ocean planning teams in 201, that conducted Solomon Islands first round of consultations to the nine Provinces and Honiara, towards the development of a National Marine Spatial Plan by 2020. The national initiative is lead by MFMR and MECDM as mandated by the Ocean12 (a body comprising of 12 key ocean-Ministries) as per the Solomon Islands National Ocean Policy. Funding and technical support were provided by IUCN, GIZ and WCS through the PEUMP Project. These 10 reports will be annexed to the main Ocean Planning first round consultations report.
This toolkit outlines the basic process of developing a national marine spatial plan. It has been tailored specifically for use by Pacific Island countries based upon lessons learned in Fiji, Solomon Islands, Tonga and Vanuatu.
