Small States: A Composite Vulnerability Index

There is growing international recognition that high economic exposure, remoteness and isolation, and proneness to natural disasters have a debilitating effect on small economies, despite their relatively high per capita incomes. The purpose of this paper is to present a composite vulnerability index designed to help identify vulnerable states. Such an index could be used as an operational tool in determining whether small states should be accorded differential treatment by the international development community.
