Information in Natural Disasters – Solomon Islands assesses current information materials on natural disasters in Solomon Islands, identifies the key actors in disseminating information during a disaster and provides recommendations for future disaster content and communications. Communities in Kuma, Weathercoast and Nea, Temotu were asked what they know already about natural disasters, what they need to know and how they wanted to recieve information in a 2 day program of focus groups with men, women and youth. This study was commissioned on behalf of the Solomon Islands National Disaster Management Office (NDMO) by the Solomon Islands Media Assistance Scheme (SOLMAS) with support from ABC International Development and funded by the Australian Government.
