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.
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.

The Solomon Islands State of Environment (SoE) Report presents an overview across seven thematic areas:
Culture and Heritage, Atmosphere and Climate, Coastal and Marine, Freshwater Resources, Land, Biodiversity
and Built Environment. The report uses the ‘Drivers, Pressures, State, Impact and Response’ (DPSIR) model
to describe the environment. As far as possible the report is based on quantitative data relating to the state of
the environment, supplemented by stakeholder input to describe causal relationships and environmental effects.
The report presents:
The ASTER Global Digital Elevation Model (GDEM) Version 3 (ASTGTM) provides a global digital elevation model (DEM) of land areas on Earth at a spatial resolution of 1 arc second (approximately 30 meter horizontal posting at the equator).
The development of the ASTER GDEM data products is a collaborative effort between National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI). The ASTER GDEM data products are created by the Sensor Information Laboratory Corporation (SILC) in Tokyo.
The Solomon Islands State of Environment Report 2019 has reached the approval stage by the Solomon Islands cabinet and is envisaged to be tabled in parliament within the next few months. The report was led and developed by the Ministry of Environment, Climate Change, Disaster Management and Meteorology (MECDM) and the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme with contributions from other government ministries and NGOs.
