This dataset holds all CIM Plans for each district of Samoa. The CIM Plans are envisaged as blueprints for climate change interventions across all development sectors reflecting the programmatic approach to climate resilience adaptation taken by the Government of Samoa.
The proposed interventions outlined in the CIM Plans are also linked to the Strategy for the Development of Samoa 2016/17 – 2019/20 and the relevant ministry sector plans.
This dataset holds two reports;
* National Disaster Management Plan 2017 - 2020
* Samoa National Action Plan for Disaster Risk Management 2017 - 2021
The Samoa National Action Plan (NAP) for Disaster Risk Management is an operational document that should be read in conjunction with the National Disaster Management Plan (NDMP) 2017-2020.
This act provides for the management of disasters and emergencies in Samoa by effective planning and risk reduction, response and recovery procedures and the promotion of coordination amongst the agencies responsible for disaster management
This paper examines traditional ecological knowledge of weather and climate in Samoa. The research found
Samoans have their own unique seasonal calendar. The Samoan seasonal calendar is predominantly based on the observations of local environmental changes, which are in turn influenced by weather and climate.
This study examines the current influence of climate change on Samoa by looking at the three tenets of vulnerability: exposure, sensitivity, and adaptive capacity. It also analyzes how environmentally secure Samoa is and will be, using Thomas Homer Dixon’s theory on climate change and conflict. Finally, the paper seeks to outline the current system of adaptation awareness that exists between government, community and foreign aid
components, and propose future strategies.

Dataset containing all published State of Environment Reports for Solomon Islands in the previous years and the current draft 2018.
The Government waste collection was used by 36% of households to dispose of their rubbish. Burning was used by 23% of all households as their main means for waste disposal, followed by disposing it into the backyard (18%). Ten percent and 8% dumped their waste into a river/stream or the sea, and another 8% buried their waste.
Dataset contains a combined monthly sea level records as observed from the year 1994 - 2018. It is well acknowledged that sea level rise is already affecting Solomon Island communities. The Solomon Islands Second National Communication cites satellite altimetry readings indicating that the country is experiencing sea-level rise at a rate of 8-10 mm per year. The monthly sea level data contains a relative sea level trend of –5.7 mm/year.
