Seagrass_data_Solomon Islands_2018

Latest version published by Ministry of Environment, Climate Change, Disaster Management & Meteorology on Oct 30, 2018 Ministry of Environment, Climate Change, Disaster Management & Meteorology

The seagrass data monitoring and mapping is conducted at various sites in Solomon Islands under the CMS/GEF Dugong/Seagrass project. It provides a much –valued opportunity to promote community-based conservation of dugong and seagrass in the Solomon Islands. The main focus area of the project for Solomon Islands is to; raise national awareness of the importance of dugong in Solomon Islands culture and of seagrass as a mitigation against climate change impacts, promoting the role of Locally Managed Marine Areas in the conservation of seagrass and dugong, mapping of seagrass meadows and managing these activities through a National Coordinating Committee

Project Data

The tropical Indo-pacific is recognized as the world's most diverse marine environment, but its size and remoteness present challenges for documentation and studying biodiversity. This project will build on the protocols, tools and growing network of collaborators established by the Diversity of the Indo-Pacific Network and VertNet to mobilize biodiversity data and identify conservation priorities in Fiji, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands and New Caledonia.
