Develop an action plan and identify and generate the datasets required for a ridge-to-reef planning process for the Solomon Islands' Ghizo and Kolombangara islands, as a basis for balanced decision-making regarding the use of natural resources. Build support for the process among local communities and civil society groups. Strengthen capacity of Western Province government staff to undertake ridge-to-reef planning on other islands.
