Adapting agriculture to climate change in Solomon Islands – Analysing the costs and benefits of options

This brief sets out the findings from a cost benefit analysis (CBA) of the options that were considered under a programme to help farmers in Choiseul Province of the Solomon Islands to adapt to climate change by adopting new farming techniques. Climate change is a threat to food security in Choiseul. The Choiseul Integrated Climate Change Programme (CICCP) was implemented by the Pacific Community (SPC) in partnership with the United States Agency
for International Development (USAID), and the Solomon Islands Government. The CBA was conducted in 2014 by AECOM Australia for the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning Program (PACCSAP).
