Vanuatu is prone to frequent natural disasters such as cyclones, which destroy roads and infrastructure and pollute water supplies.1 Soil erosion, loss of biodiversity, and inadequate waste disposal are all contributing to environmental degradation and decreased agricultural and economic productivity on the islands.2 A large percentage of Vanuatu’s population depends on the agricultural sector for a living, and the increasing effects of climate change will hinder agricultural productivity.3 In 2015, the country was devastated by Cyclone Pam, which destroyed thousands of structures and killed a dozen people.4

This South Pacific island economy is based primarily on small-scale agriculture, which provides a living for about two-thirds of the population. Fishing, offshore financial services, and tourism, with nearly 197,000 visitors in 2008, are other mainstays of the economy. Mineral deposits are negligible; the country has no known petroleum deposits. A small light industry sector caters to the local market. Tax revenues come mainly from import duties. Economic development is hindered by dependence on relatively few commodity exports, vulnerability to natural disasters, and long distances from main markets and between constituent islands. In response to foreign concerns, the government has ...See More promised to tighten regulation of its offshore financial center. In mid-2002, the government stepped up efforts to boost tourism through improved air connections, resort development, and cruise ship facilities. Agriculture, especially livestock farming, is a second target for growth. Australia and New Zealand are the main suppliers of tourists and foreign aid. Show Less ;
