- We can order this from the publisher
First published in 1989. The Pacific Islands are amongst the poorest countries of the developing world. The special problems of their small size, immense distance from major centres and, for many, very poor agricultural possibilities make development extremely difficult. However, recent new advances in maritime technology in a wide range of different areas present substantial new opportunities. This book surveys the new developments - including extended maritime boundaries; giant clam farming; increased exploitation of ocean minerals and new fisheries techniques - and demonstrates the potential for far-reaching economic and social development.
