Vanuatu

Vanuatu is an island archipelago consisting of approximately 82 relatively small islands, 65 of which are inhabited. The islands of Vanuatu are widely spread out, with a distance of 1,300 km between the outermost islands.

Vanuatu has a tropical climate and over 80% of the population lives in rural, isolated villages with access to their own gardens and food supplies. These geographically isolated communities have minimal access to basic health and education services.

The economy consists mainly of agriculture, tourism, offshore financial services, and raising cattle. There is also a substantial fishing industry, although this does not bring in foreign income as the fish are traded locally.
