The availability of timely and reliable spatial population data is necessary when analysing a wide range of sustainable development areas such as disaster risk assessment and response, infectious disease outbreaks, water availability and coastal fisheries management.
Pacific Data Hub .Stat (commonly known as PDH.stat) is a powerful interactive online tool that presents a wide range of statistical indicators in a flexible and dynamic manner.
Understanding population distribution along coastal areas in the Pacific is crucial for a range of applications including food security and disaster management. A collaborative project between SPC, WorldFish and the University of Wollongong has produced the first detailed population estimates of people living close to the coast in the 22 Pacific Island Countries and Territories (PICTs).
