    Are you asking about poverty on Pacific islands? Which islands?

  • environment -

    All Island in the Pacific

  • environment -

    Since your question includes all islands in the Pacific -- Hawaii, Japan, Easter, Guam, Marianas, Taiwan, Philippines, etc., etc. -- I'd say "No!" The causes of poverty vary from one island to another.

    am still not understand, can you give more why you would say no?

  • environment -

    We can't make generalizations about the 20,000 or so Pacific islands.

    Poverty is caused by lack of resources and jobs. Ir may also be caused by government corruption and overpopulation.
