New Zealand to provide a portable bridge to Solomon Islands across Matanikau bridge

Geraldine Coutts

New Zealand will give a portable bridge to Solomon Islands next month to help ease Honiara's severe traffic congestion.

One of the two bridges across the Matanikau River was severely damaged by the April floods.

A total of 23 people died and 9,000 were made homeless after devastating floods, landslides and strong winds swept parts of the island nation.

The capital has been left with only one bridge to reach the hospital and international airport since the disaster.

Water Level Situation in Gold Ridge Dam, Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands (17 April 2014)

This map illustrates satellite-detected water areas as seen by the ASTER sensor acquired on 15 April 2014 as well as a Landsat-8 image acquired on 15 March 2014. The water level inside the tailings pond has increased between 15 March and 15 April 2014. However, the waters have not overflowed the tailings dam as of 15 April. The exact limit of flood affected zones is uncertain because of the sensor characteristics and the resolution of the data. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.

Access to education – Rebuilding after Haiyan

Sitting here in the air conditioned bubble of the departure lounge of Iloilo airport, waiting to fly back to Manila, my thoughts go back to some of the people I met in in Iloilo.

One place in particular comes to mind.

CBM works with partner RBI (Resources for the Blind), who ensure that children with visual impairments – and they may also have hearing, learning or mobility difficulties – have the chance to access education.

In November, Typhoon Haiyan destroyed many of the buildings that are used for these classes, effectively ending education for the children.
