Honiara is the capital of the Solomon Islands and serves as its main transport hub and economic, political and educational center. Flooding in April 2014 affected some 80 percent of the population of Honiara. The ACP-EU NDRR project entitled Solomon Islands: Honiara Flood Risk Study and Management Plan investigated urban flood risk and providing quality information on how flood risk can be better managed and reduced in the Greater Honiara area, thereby strengthening the city’s disaster preparedness and resilience to weather extremes.

A detailed flood risk study report was published, which provides an assessment of flood risk in the study area and a description of the impacts of climate change on flood behavior and risk.
