In Asia-Pacific, a person living in a least developed country, and in a small island country in particular, is much more likely to be affected by natural disasters than someone living in any other country of the region. Their small population, less diversified economies, and dependence on imports and aid makes them also very vulnerable to economic shocks. Furthermore in many cases aggressive mining of resources results in unsustainable patterns of economic growth. In addition, least developed countries have to confront challenges posed by climate change and threats to biodiversity.
