Local Solomon Star Journalist wins ADBI Award

Two Pacific journalists who took part in this this year's Development Asia Journalism Award have both scooped awards in the Climate Change Adaptation category.

Solomon Star journalist Moffat Mamu received the winning award, while Fiji's Samasoni Pareti got the second runners up award.

The trophy and certificates were awarded by the Asian Development Bank Institute, a sister organisation of the Asian Development Bank.

The competition organised annually by ABDI aims to recognise print journalists who have contributed to four issues relating to Poverty, Infrastructure Development, the Impacts of the current Global Financial Crisis and Climate Change Adaptation.

It was the first time Solomon Islands participated in the competition since its inception five years ago.

Both Mamu and Pareti traveled to Tokyo to receive their awards on Friday.

Their winning articles talked about the impacts of climate change in Solomon Islands, Fiji and the region, in relation to sea level rise.
