Tuvalu, in the center of the Pacific Ocean
The archipelago of Tuvalu is made up of nine atolls, themselves spread out over 1.3 million km² south of the Equator. Its land mass makes it one of the smallest countries in the word in terms of surface area. Settled by Polynesians, these islands were discovered in the 16th century by a Spanish sailor, though the first colonists did not settle there until 1820. The former Ellice Islands came under British control in 1877 and gained their independence a century later. Threatened by the effects of climate change, the islands of Tuvalu are strongly dependent on exterior aid. Local food consumption is essentially geared towards coastal fishing and the cultivation of tubers and tropical fruits. Copra is one of the only products exported. Tuvalu has barely more than 12,000 inhabitants, close to a third of whom live on the island of Fongafale and the island of Funafuti. The international airport is located on the territory of the village of Vaiaku.
