Brief Description: The South Pacific nation of Tuvalu is a low-lying island group that does not exceed four meters above sea level at its highest point. Tuvalu is also currently considered both a “Least Developed Country” and a “Small Island Developing State.” In view of Tuvalu’s environmental and economic circumstances, the Government of Tuvalu has worked diligently to devise various financial policies and environmental strategies that can serve to both increase national and per capita income and mitigate rising sea levels triggered by climate change. Minute Alapati Taupo, current Ambassador at the Embassy of Tuvalu in the R.O.C. (Taiwan), formerly served as Tuvalu’s Permanent Secretary for Finance and Economic Development. Consequently, Ambassador Taupo possesses a comprehensive understanding of Tuvalu’s financial policies as well as unique views regarding the nation’s environmental concerns. During his lecture, Ambassador Taupo will explain the history of several significant financial strategies and environmental measures that have been adopted by the Government of Tuvalu.
