Climate action plans for five informal settlements in Honiara, Solomon Islands

This project involves participatory action research and close collaboration with five informal settlements to identify climate vulnerabilities, their priority needs, and then to co-design potential climate actions with local stakeholders (including the identification of local implementation partners).

A detailed climate action plan will be developed for each settlement.

Project timeline: 2019 - 2020
