Climate change, damage to valuable ecosystems and overfishing are creating challenges for the people of the Pacific islands. In this project, WorldFish and the Australian Center for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) aim to promote greater food security through a national program of marine resource management for the worst affected communities in Solomon Islands and to expand this to Kiribati and Vanuatu. The goal is to halt the degradation of inshore reefs and fisheries, which act as nurseries for marine ecosystems and to empower local people to manage these valuable resources.
