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.

Coral reefs are diverse underwater ecosystems held together by calcium carbonate structures secreted by corals. Coral reefs are built by colonies of tiny animals found in marine waters that contain few nutrients. Most coral reefs are built from stony corals, which in turn consist of polyps that cluster in groups. The polyps belong to a group of animals known as Cnidaria, which also includes sea anemones and jellyfish. Unlike sea anemones, corals secrete hard carbonate exoskeletons which support and protect the coral polyps. Most reefs grow best in warm, shallow, clear, sunny and agitated waters. Often called "rainforests of the sea", shallow coral reefs form some of the most diverse ecosystems on Earth. They occupy less than 0.1% of the world's ocean surface, about half the area of France...
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

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...

See how Caritas Australia have successfully negotiated with village Chiefs and landowners to build gravity fed water supply systems for communities in the Diocese of Auki and Archdiocese of Honiara. Over 3600 people around Buma now have access to potable water.
This film is about a gravity fed water project undertaken by Caritas Australia in the Solomon Islands. Adam Elliott, who is the project officer for CA in the Solomons, takes us on location to the village of Buma on the island of Malaita and explains the politics and the logistics of the project.
