Project data: Taro-Choiseul Shoreline Retreat


The Integrated Climate Risk Assessment and Adaptation Plan for Choiseul Bay Township, Solomon Islands project assesses both current and future climate-related risks to the provincial capital of Choiseul Province and a proposed new township site. In partnership with the Choiseul Provincial Government and National Township Committee, the project has produced an adaptation plan and master plan for a safer and more resilient township in the future.
