This report presents an analysis of evacuation centres by architecture, engineering, and GIS experts from RMIT University. They worked closely with key stakeholders in Honiara to undertake preliminary analysis on evacuation centre needs, and to make recommendations for interventions for the Climate Resilient Honiara project (CRH).
The report is based on a combination of desktop research and several field visits during which observations and informal discussions took place with local leaders and community members. Consultations also took place with the National Disaster Management Office; Ministry of Lands, Housing and Survey (MLHS); Honiara City Council; and Ward Councillors. Design guidelines and field observations have led to the development of concept designs which can be used as a starting point for further detailed discussions with the communities and related stakeholders.
