In 1993, a cyclone destroyed the water supply system in Nanngu, a remote village in the Solomon Islands. With only one tap for the entire village, life was very hard. With the support of the community, 20 years later a project has brought back clean water to the village with facilities that can withstand natural disasters.

ISABEL, SOLOMON ISLANDS — A new study led by University of Queensland researchers says that changes in global climate and the subsequent sea level rise has already led to the loss of multiple Pacific islands. The team of Australian scientists, after sifting through decades worth of historical insight from locals as well as time series aerial and satellite imagery, say that Isabel, one of the main islands of the Solomon archipelago, has already lost five of its reef islands. These islands were once densely vegetated but weren't populated, reported the Washington Post. However, another six islands on Isabel have declined in area by more than 20 percent between 1947 and 2014. Meanwhile, residents of the island of Nuatambu have been forced to relocate to the nearby main island of Choiseul b...

Welcome to the Solomon Islands.a very special place… swaying palms, white sandy beaches, warm crystal clear water home to thousands of reef fish, a sacred place, a place where you can pay tribute to past heroes and learn a little of their battles. A place where you can cross a lagoon that you will never forget. A place where you can stay and eat in five star luxury or get away from it all in a home stay over water. A place that embraces the future but still holds on to the past and it’s traditional culture. The Solomon Islands, Islands adrift in time, A place time passed by… however you describe the Solomons the Solomons are so Solomons so different.

Clips shot with GoPro Hero3. First 2 clips 1080p 30fps. Last clip 2.7k 24 fps. Edited in iMovie 10.0.1 which simply does not function!!! I could not color correct, I could not properly trim clips, I could not adjust font size, style, or color. Many, many other aspects of iMovie 10.0.1 DO NOT WORK! I intend to reload all the original files into iMovie 9 which works very well. (c) Craig Capehart
The Solomon Islands, in the heart of the Pacific, relies on expensive imported fuel for nearly 100% of its electricity. It has some of the highest energy costs in the world, and one of the lowest rates of connection in the world; just 9% of Solomon Islanders are connected to the electricity grid. This is the story of Melody and James, who live in Honiara, the Solomon Islands capital.
