Solomon Islands

A paper concerning the Solomon Islands ‘Tourism as a Tool to Conserve Humanity’s Cultural and Natural Heritage’ was posted on the web-based discussion forum ‘Wise Coastal Practices for Sustainable Human Development’.

The Small Islands Voice project started in January 2002. Its goals are to overcome the isolation of small islands by providing their citizens, including young people, with opportunities to voice their opinions on environmental and development issues in a variety of ways: radio, television, print and Internet-based debate. In this way the general public will be able to contribute to the 10-year review of the ‘Programme of Action for the Sustainable Development of Small Islands Developing States’ adopted in Barbados in 1994; and play a more effective role in decision-making in their islands. The Solomon Islands is one of the island territories involved in the project through the Small Islands Voice Internet-based global forum;  a correspondent from the Solomon Islands contributed to a discussion on development Further Views on the Palau Road’.
