Saenaua Women's Association
In 1982, New Zealand funded a reafforestation project under a plan negotiated among the Solomon Islands Government, the New Zealand Government and Saenaua landowners. The project was initiated to reduce the slash and burn methods practiced by the local community.
Landowners combined their plots and cleared the land. Trees were planted for a minimal wage and the women planted communal vegetable gardens between the stands of trees. This has resulted in deforested lands being replanted and the production of vegetables to supplement nutritional needs.
