This project aims to develop and test processes and tools that build transformative capacity in the Solomon Islands and Kiribati, eventually triggering a step-change in coastal food systems evidenced by improved diet, nutrition and community health; community food self-sufficiency; enhanced climate and disaster resilience; restoration and stewardship of natural resources, and diversified livelihoods.
This will provide an evidence base that will encourage a regional shift to food systems transformation through the involvement of multiple project partners.
