The Ministry of Mines, Energy and Rural Electrification’s (MMERE) traditional functions and responsibilities are mandated by the Acts of Parliament that the Ministry is responsible administering.

These Acts continue to be reviewed and improved on in light of the Ministry’s commitment to its international and regional obligations and the changing needs and demands of a growing Solomon Islands population. As a result, the Ministry’s functions and responsibilities in regulating the mining, energy and water sectors are constantly being updated to cater for the new realities and changes in practices throughout the Pacific Islands region and the world.
