Political relations between Germany and the Solomon Islands are amicable. Diplomatic contacts are maintained via the German Embassy in Canberra.
Germany mainly supports economic, social and cultural development in the Solomon Islands through its substantial contributions to the EU’s European Development Fund.
The country also plays a role in Germany’s close climate policy cooperation with the states of the South Pacific region, particularly within the framework of regional programmes run by the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the International Climate Initiative (ICI) of the Federal Environment Ministry.
Since 2011, the German Archaeological Institute, in cooperation with the Solomon Islands National Museum and the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, has been conducting excavations to investigate the early settlement of the Solomon Islands. They are intended to shed light on how prehistoric humans populated the Pacific region, which has received little research attention to date.
The German Embassy in Canberra frequently supports small-scale projects in the Solomon Islands, mostly in the areas of education and health.
The Solomon Islands is a member of our Group of Friends on Climate and Security in the United Nations.
