Small Island Developing States (SIDS) account for less than one per cent of global Green House Gases (GHG). For example, in the Pacific islands, the average per capita equivalent emissions are 0.96 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year; this equates to only approximately 25 per cent of the CO2 emissions attributable to the average person worldwide.
