Nauru is a small coral island nation in the South Pacific Ocean, totalling a mere 21sq km. Nauru previously prospered from it's large phosphate deposits, but significant depletion and a drop in demand means Nauru's economic future is uncertain.

With 90% unemployment, Nauru faces a range of development issues and receives substantial support from Australia. AVI's work in Nauru is through the Pacific Technical Assistance Mechanism (PACTAM) and focuses primarily on governance and economic development.
