Abstract: Solomon Islands is vulnerable to impacts from climate change and extreme environmental events (EEE), where people’s livelihoods and their well-being are threatened, especially the viability of isolated communities. This thesis analyses five adaptive strategies which communities could consider when planning adaptation programs at the local level. These are (i) adopting household income net worth as a measure against climate change, (ii) transformation of rural communities: lessons from a local self-initiative for building resilience in the Solomon Islands (iii) assessing education as adaptation tool for climate change (iv) focussing on limits and barriers to adaptation (v) and evaluating wantok system (social capital system) as form of climate change adaptation at rural communities.
