The vast majority of Solomon Islanders depend on fishing and farming for food and livelihoods. However, coastal marine resources are under threat due to overfishing, the effects of climate change and ecosystem degradation. Improving Community-based Fisheries Management or PacFisheries is a community-based project that aims to improve the lives of the people in the Solomon Islands through co-developing comprehensive natural resource management plans. Working with partner NGOs and government, the project will monitor the development and assess the effectiveness of local management plans. Community participants in the project will acquire the knowledge and skills needed to develop workable plans.
