This brief presents an exploratory analysis of factors associated with food insecurity in the Solomon Islands. Data were collected from 1862 women and men in the Central and Guadalcanal Provinces between February and April 2020, via the IDM survey, in partnership with Dignity Pasifik. The focus of the Solomon Islands IDM study was to understand how the circumstances of men and women underpin the relationship between food security, gender, and resilience.

The IDM is a partnership between the ANU and IWDA with strategic funding from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The Solomon Islands study was also supported by The World Food Programme.
