This is the eighth issue of this annual publication, which was previously published under the title 'Basic Statistical Data on Selected Countries (with populations of less than 5 million)'. As in the previous issue, the publication is in two parts. The first section provides a narrative focusing on the recent economic performance of Commonwealth small states. It also contains two feature articles on 'Small Vulnerable Economy Issues and the WTO' and 'Small Island States in the Face of Climatic Change: The End of the Line in International Environmental Responsibility'. The second part of the book provides social and economic data on small states. These are presented in 51 tables. In order to maintain the continuity of the series, the country coverage and country groupings based on income are the same as those used in previous issues of this publication.

Small Island States in the Face of Climatic Change: The End of the Line in International Environmental Responsibility

Small island developing states are increasingly recognised as deserving of special consideration both in international law generally and in international environmental law in particular. This special recognition has grown since the 1992 Earth Summit and was clearly reflected in the 1994 Programme of Action for the Sustainable Development of Small Island Developing States (to be revisited in 2004) and within the 2002 Plan of Implementation of the World Summit on Sustainable Development.
