Niue (affectionately known as "the Rock"), situated in the
southern Pacific Ocean, is one of the world's largest coral islands
and one of the world's smallest independent nations. Niue is a
self-governing state in free association with New Zealand, where a
substantial number of Niueans emigrate.
Niue suffered a devastating typhoon in 2004 and faces issues of
isolation and limited natural resources. AVI's work in Niue is via
the Pacific Technical
Assistance Mechanism (PACTAM).
