Calculated as Production (if any) + Imports - Exports

Community consultations have taken place on four islands to collect relevant information on island biodiversity, so as to incorporate this into the National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan. The perceived threats are shown in this excel sheet.

Data submitted to the UN Ozone Secretariat highlighting the trend of ODS consumption (calculated as Production (if any) + imports - exports) in Tuvalu. Ozone Depleting Substances calculated here are HCFCs and Methal Bromide.

Perceived threats can be summarised as arising from deleterious human actions and negative attitudes to the environment, leading to inappropriate behaviour, such as littering, over-fishing and hunting, using fishing nets and modern fishing method, the use of guns and the introduction of pests; the use of inappropriate technologies, such as solid and liquid waste water disposal systems; uncontrolled use of resources and control of livestock; increasing consumption patterns, arising from increases in human populations, demands and changing lifestyles; institutional weaknesses; ignorance and l

Presenting the estimated areas of different land use/land cover types present in Tuvalu. This data was presented in both the 4th and 5th national reports to the CBD.

Data extracted from the 'Fisheries in the PICs' report, 2016. From the table, it can be seen that, in 2014, foreign-based offshore fishing in the Tuvalu zone produced 96,898 mt of fish, with an in-zone value of US$132 million (A$161 million).

Studies of the benefits to Pacific Island countries and territories from fisheries (“Benefish” studies) have been carried out in the past. Gillett and Lightfoot (2001) focused on the year 1999, Gillett (2009) focused on 2007, and the present study focuses on 2014.

The fishery production levels for Tuvalu from those three studies are presented in this data.

The data presents the volume and value of estimates annual fisheries catches and aqua cultural harvest in Tuvalu in 2014.

Data extracted from the Fisheries in PIC's economies' report, 2016.

The apparent changes in production for the three years sometimes represents real change in production, but it can also reflect a change in the methodology for how the production is measured (hopefully an improvement). In table above, the production levels for coastal commercial, coastal subsistence, and freshwater change significantly between the years, but some of that change is due to the way in which the production was estimated. For example, for the 2014 estimate of coastal fisheries production, the results of
the 2010 HIES were available.

As a developing country, Tuvalu is listed under Article 5 of the Montreal Protocol, and therefore provided with assistance to phase-out consumption of CFCs by 2010, HCFCs by 2030, and HFCs by 2024. According to Tuvalu’s 2010 National Compliance Action Strategy (NCAS) to implement the Montreal Protocol, only two types of ODS are known to have been imported into Tuvalu – CFCs and HCFCs, both in very small quantities. All consumption of these substances is through the refrigeration and air conditioning service sector (Government of Tuvalu 2010).

Long form dataset containing data from APWC high level waste sorts and detailed container sort. See the "Pivot Table" sheet for a summary of the data contained here.
Note that average values will not work for the pivot table, as each category has a number of subcategories which messes up the calculation of averages.
