Abstract

This chapter describes the geography, population and demography, economy and health status of small island developing states (SIDS). The drivers of the vulnerability of SIDS to the impacts of climate change (natural disasters, extreme weather events) and some of the key health risks and adaptive options these nations face are discussed. Examples and case studies cited are taken predominantly from Pacific island nations, although their plight is shared more broadly across developing island nations of the Caribbean and Indian Ocean regions.
