A Manual for Small States

image of Profiling Vulnerability and Resilience
Profiling Vulnerability and Resilience: A Manual for Small States provides a tool for assessing both how prone a country is to external economic shocks – its vulnerability – as well as its ability to bounce back from those shocks – its resilience.



The book explains how to conduct assessments that will allow each country to understand its relative vulnerability and resilience, and to identify priority areas for economic policy-making, so as to better cope with vulnerability and boost resilience. Detailed examples are provided for St Lucia, Seychelles and Vanuatu.



For economic planners, as well as students of the economies of small states.

Introduction

This publication forms part of a project between the Commonwealth Secretariat and the Islands and Small States Institute of the University of Malta, involving a series of workshops and accompanying publications on the economic vulnerability and resilience of small states. One of the outcomes of the project was the development of an economic resilience index. The project has also led to the development of conceptual and practical approaches for profiling countries in terms of economic vulnerability and resilience.
