    Small States' resilience to natural disasters and climate change - role of the IMF

    International Monetary Fund, 2016
    Small developing states are disproportionately vulnerable to natural disasters. On average, the annual cost of disasters for small states is nearly 2 percent of GDP—more than four times that for larger countries. This reflects a higher frequency of disasters, adjusted for land area, as well as greater vulnerability to severe disasters.

    Atolls and climate change: strengthening resilience

    Agence française de développement, 2016
    At just a few meters above the waves, the atolls or low-lying coral islands surrounding a lagoon are one of the areas the most exposed to the many consequences of climate change (rising water levels, lagoon erosion, but also ocean acidification and land salinization, changes in rainfall patterns, etc.).

    Climate change threatens Hawaiian forest birds

    Pacific Islands Regional Climate Assessment, 2016
    In Hawai'i, geograpahic isolation has prevented the natural establishment of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and many insect species, such as biting mosquitoes. Isolation has also facilitated the spectacular evolutionary radiation of Hawaiian honeycreepers from a single small flock of North American finches into more than 50 species and subspecies of endemic forest birds.
