Tuvalu is located roughly halfway between Australia and Hawaii. Its nine islands cover 26 square kilometres yet its exclusive economic zone covers an enormous 900,000 square kilometres of ocean. Half of the country’s 12,000 population lives in the capital Funafuti, with the remainder spread thinly around the outer islands (UNISDR).
