Food security and markets study begun

Published on Thu, 5/03/15 | News, Research

Dr Anouk Ride has begun work on a new study on food security and markets, entitled Human Security And Livelihoods In Solomon Islands: Engaging With The Market Economy, which is led by Dr Nichole Georgeou (Australian Catholic University) with Dr Charles Hawksley (University of Wollongong). The field research will explore production of food on Savo Island, Solomon Islands, for sale at the Honiara Central Market and related economic and security issues. Dr Anouk Ride leads a local research team of men and women with experience in Savo and the market trade to talk to rural people about the challenges and opportunities they face in food production and sale. The research is expected to be published later this year.
