Communities in Malaita and Choiseul provinces were equipped with the knowledge on how to create action plans to address issues affecting communities on the use of land.
Representatives from Panarui in Choiseul and Takwa and Radeaekoa in Malaita participated in the community-based land use planning workshop in Honiara this week.
Speaking to SIBC News, land use planner Jimmy Walton says the participants are now equipped with sound land use plans they are expected to implement in their communities.
“Involve them into creating land use action plans of communities so it helps and guides them into addressing issues which affect communities on the use of land for food and at the same time external forces that affect their work regarding food security such as climate change population growth and technical information.”
Eighteen communities across the country have participated so far in similar workshops.
Conducted by the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock, the workshop concluded yesterday.
