    This paper presents the first phase of an interdisciplinary study for the management of Kongulai catchment, a primary water source providing up to 60 of the water supply for Honiara, the capital of the Solomon Islands. There are complex economic, social and ecological factors involved, including multiple uses for both water and catchment and many potential threats to the water supply, including logging, agriculture, pathogens, unstable geology and the institutional arrangements. In such cases a risk-based approach is widely recommended (Rothstein et al. 2006, Slater and Jones 1999).
