A Directory of Environmentally Sound Technologies for the Integrated Management of Solid, Liquid and Hazardous Waste for Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in the Pacific Region

Small Islands have special physical, demographic and economic features. Their much reduced areas, shortage of natural resources (arable land, freshwater, minerals and conventional energy sources), geological complexity, isolation and widespread nature of their territories, exposure to natural disasters (typhoons, hurricanes, cyclones, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis) sometimes make the water resources, solid waste and wastewater problems of these islands very serious (UNESCO, 1991).
