Environmental sustainability

Advertise with Islandsun

IT has been reported recently that the community of Barana on Mt Austen, Guadacanal, is determined to re-plant trees and protect the ecosystems in a proposed park.
At a community consultation organised last week by SPREP through the Pacific Ecosystem-based Adaptation to Climate Change (PEBACC) project and the Ministry of Environment, the community indicated great interest to champion appropriate ecosystem-based adaption activities to build their resilience to climate change.
I congratulate all concerned in focusing on tree-planting, protecting the ecosystem and working towards environmental sustainability at a time when climate change poses increasing threats to livelihoods in the Solomon Islands.
Yours sincerely
Frank Short
