    Abstract

    One of the greatest challenges and opportunities facing the South Pacific is rapid urbanisation, and Solomon Islands faces some of the most pressing urban growth stresses in the region. Its urban population is increasing at around 4.4 percent, almost twice the rate of national population growth — a tempo that will double urban dwellers in less than 17 years (Keen & Barbara 2015). As part of a broader study of urbanisation in Honiara, this In-Brief examines online urban news articles from July 2014 to June 2016 reported in the main newspaper, Solomon Star. The study investigates the capacity of press media to accurately and independently communicate urban issues.
