Solomons communities report positive change through justice programme

From , 5:03 am on 24 October 2018

Isolated communities in Solomon Islands are reporting a reduction in domestic violence and other crimes thanks to a project aimed at improving conflict resolution.

More than 80 percent of Solomon Islanders live in rural and remote areas where even the most basic of government services are non-existent.

The Community Governance and Grievance Management Program aims to address this by training locally appointed community officers to become mediators, both in times of conflict and to facilitate better delivery of government services.
