In August 2016, the ANU partnered with Guadalcanal Provincial Government to convene a workshop to explore visions, priorities, and options for the future development of Henderson. The workshop was designed to support a constructive dialogue on urban development opportunities. This In Brief sets out key insights raised by stakeholders during the workshop and analyses how future research and policy engagement could better address rapid urbanisation in Guadalcanal. Around 30 participants attended the workshop from national, provincial and local government agencies, members of the Guadalcanal Provincial Assembly, and community groups. The enthusiasm to create new pathways for local urban development was strong.
