The challenge for sustainable management of natural resources is to find a balance. There is arguably no more significant threat to the Pacific Islands than climate change, and through the Pacific Resilience Program, projects across the region are helping to strengthen Pacific Island countries’ Fiji, the World Bank supported the government to prepare a comprehensive assessment of the country’s vulnerability to climate change inand in partnership with.

The importance of learning in natural resource management (NRM) is being recognized by an increasing number of scholars and practitioners. A learning approach to NRM applies principles and theories of adult, organizational and social learning, and is underpinned by three core elements: systems thinking, negotiation, and reflection.

The economy of Papua New Guinea is largely underdeveloped. It is dominated by the agricultural, forestry, and fishing sector and the minerals and energy extraction sector. The agricultural, forestry, and fishing sector accounts for most of the labour force of Papua New Guinea, while the minerals and energy extraction sector is responsible for most of the export earnings.

Several empirical studies have found that countries experience slower rates of economic growth when exports are concentrated in natural resources (NRs). Various potential channels for this relationship have been identified including: Dutch disease; volatility in the terms of trade; and impacts on governance.

Case Study: The Pacific Islands EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Agriculture remains the backbone of the Pacific Island economies: it is the main source of livelihood for the population as well as a major export earner.

The “islandness”, smallness and remoteness of the Pacific Island countries has hindered their economic development in the world economy. According to the Pacific Aid Map data, the vast majority (97 per cent) of China’s official loans in the Pacific has been in the form of concessional loans from its EXIM Bank.

This is a markedly different situation to the global picture, where lending on market terms by China Development Bank and commercial Chinese banks also play a sizeable role. South Asia from The World Bank: Data.

As early as the s, countries began to claim islands and various zones in the South China Sea, such as the Spratly Islands, which possess rich natural resources and fishing areas. Tropical cyclones are non-frontal, low pressure systems that develop, within an environment of warm sea surface temperatures and little vertical wind shear aloft.
