Constituency development funds (CDFs) are attracting an increasing level of academic attention internationally (see Baskin and Mezey 2014). To date, work done on CDFs in the Pacific, and in Solomon Islands specifically, has lagged behind work done on Africa, South Asia and other regions. This is anomalous given that 2015 has seen CDFs in Solomon Islands rise to historically — indeed globally — high levels. This In Brief outlines the current state of play on CDFs in Solomon Islands, and suggests areas for further research.
