Pacific island countries have united internationally to contest the negative external impacts of Western technology such as the disposal of poison gas and toxic waste, the transportation of nuclear materials and nuclear testing, as well as the overwhelming prospect of global warming and a rising sea-level. These internal effects encompass the well-identified problems caused by unsustainable fishing, forestry and mining and, more unknown, the various cost/benefits of new technology in the region. The contributors' analyses and observations span a range of key issues: agriculture and forestry, aid and technology, aviation and shipping, banking, communications, development policy and planning, education and training, energy, the environment, fisheries and marine resources, food processing, gender issues, health, housing, industry, mining, project management, technology choice and transfer and sanitation and water supply.
