Topics: Resilient livelihoods
Honiara and Auki towns in the Solomon Islands have been plagued by devastating disasters in the past including: tropical cyclone Namu in 1986, flash flooding in Honiara in 2014, and drought in 2015. This research report assesses the extent to which the markets that UN Women supports in Auki and Honiara are vulnerable to climate change. The study set out to map, document and understand the relative vulnerability of Honiara and Auki municipal markets and their vendors and farmers to climate change and disaster risks.
