The World Bank undertook this study to explore the scope for, and potential impacts of, increasing the local economic impact of aid through increased local spending by donors. More specifically, this study examines the potential for increasing participation of Solomon Islands women entrepreneurs in relation to local aid-economy opportunities. The research is framed around four key questions:
1. What are the key characteristics of the Solomon Islands aid economy?
2. Why increase the participation of women entrepreneurs in the Solomon Islands aid economy?
