Adapting to climate change in remote Roviana - Building resilience


Report describing how coastal erosion and rising sea levels are effecting the community of Roviana, Solomon Islands, and the community-based adaptation options that have been created to protect homes and resources.

This 4-page project overview is intended for decision-makers in Solomon Islands with an interest in climate change, community-based adaptation and protecting local land and marine resources.
