The Solomon Islands is ranked 157 on the Human Development Index (HDI). The Macro Assessment project looked at the most impoverished provinces based on a World Vision-specific understanding of well-being.
We made a poverty ranking tool in order to do the analysis. The tool was based on World Vision Solomon Islands’ sectoral-specific focuses. We primarily used secondary data to develop the province-specific poverty index. Primary data was collected through staff interviews. They identified emergent areas that would need support in the future.
The research is a source document. It is used to identify the most strategic location for World Vision programming. It provides sectoral-specific background.
