Urbanization has improved the standard of living for many people in the country as it often brings in greater wealth and economic opportunities for the national population. But, unless these opportunities are well managed through balanced growth policies, it can leads to an increase in urban poverty, a rise in socio-economic inequality and informal settlements poorly served with basic services. In recognition of the need to better address these issues, the Ministry of Lands and Survey (MLHS), has requested UN-Habitat support to undertake the urban profiling in the Solomon Islands.
Profiles for Solomon Islands include
- Solomon Islands: Auki Town Profile 2012
- Solomon Islands: Gizo Urban Profile (Upcoming)
- Solomon Islands: Honiara Urban Profile 2012
