Integrating global environment commitments in investment and development decision-making in the Solomon Islands

Introduction

Solomon Island’s customary land tenure system has had the unintended consequence of creating significant negative environmental impacts. This, together with high population growth, uncontrolled large scale forest logging, displacement of traditional land and resource management systems has had adverse effects on the country's forest resources that cover about 85% of the land area.

The goal of this project, Integrating global environment commitments in investment and development decision-making in the Solomon Islands, is to deliver global environmental benefits across the three Rio Conventions through reduced deforestation and forest degradation by strengthening policy coordination and planning mechanisms.
