AUTHOR(S)

Economy

Niue is a very small State, with few natural resources, a very small and youthful population base, and is economically and ecologically vulnerable, as was proven by Cyclone Heta. Despite the loss of all health statistics, and other data in the cyclone, previously reported and anecdotal evidence however shows that the major statistical indicators for Niue are good. Education and health indicators are particularly positive, although some serious doubts over reproductive health education, incest and teenage pregnancy, and the health implications of asbestos on the island remain. Part I of this report identifies the political, economic and socio-economic issues relevant to children, youth and women on Niue with some of those key indicators.
