ISLAND ENVIRONMENTAL VULNERABILITY INDEX
The South Pacific Applied Geoscience Commission (SOPAC) is continuing its work to develop an Environmental Vulnerability Index (EVI). A first proposal for an Environmental Vulnerability Index appropriate for Small Island Developing States (SIDS) was released by SOPAC on 4 February 1999 (see Executive Summary). This work was further developed at an Environmental Vulnerability Index (EVI) Think Tank, 7-10 September 1999 in Pacific Harbour, Fiji, for which a report is now available. A second phase report testing the index in 5 countries will be available soon.
The project responds to the request of the 1994 Barbados Programme of Action for SIDS to develop a vulnerability index, and complements work on economic and social vulnerability that has already demonstrated the disadvantages suffered by SIDS. SOPAC has established a homepage for the Environmental Vulnerability Index project on its web site at http://www.sopac.org.fj/Projects/Evi/index.html where the reports can be obtained.
See also the Report of the ad hoc expert group meeting on vulnerability indices for small island developing States (New York, 15-16 December 1997)
Indicators relevant to the environmental vulnerability of islands can also be found in the Island Directory. These are specific to individual islands, rather than aggregated at the national level for SIDS.
