Solomon Islands Provincial Governance Information Paper Report uri icon


  • The Solomon Islands Provincial Government system has been in decline for at least ten years. Issues which limit the effectiveness of National Government, such as political and bureaucratic leadership, good governance, communication, morale and human resource management, also characterize Provincial Governments. In addition, Provinces suffer from poorly defined roles and functions, inadequate funding, isolation and weak relationships with National Government. These problems have been exacerbated by the impact of the recent civil conflict particularly the severe reductions in Provincial Service Grants, the principal source of Provincial Government revenue.
