Project Description

Auki Provincial Prison was completed as part of the RAMSI Infrastructure program aimed at developing facilities within the country following the Fire & Civil unrest and ethnic tension since 2000. Studies undertaken by the Solomon Islands Prison Service (SIPS) in partnership with RAMSI recognized a need for regional prisons that would allow the separation of ethnic groups within the system and enable inmates to be held within their tribal lands. This was a significant decision aimed at reducing the pressure within the prison system and allowing greater family connection for inmates.
