Carving Out: Development in the Pacific

The homepage for Carving Out, the online counterpart to the ABC.net radio program of the same name, seems to camouflage its wealth of information behind graphics of swimming fish, circling sharks, and jumping turtles. However, Carving Out provides an excellent introduction to development issues in the Pacific, including countries such as Fiji, Tonga, Paupa New Guinea, and the Marshall Islands. Beginning with basic maps of the region, which cover the islands as well as sea areas, users may click on the links on the top and bottom of the maps and stats section to learn more about each country's language, colonial history, environmental concerns, and nuclear test sites. Clicking on More Detailed Info will take users to charts with more in-depth information on these issues. The Issues section covers topics including economics, urbanization and migration, governance, aid, and environment with articles and papers from a variety of scholars and sources. The site also contains transcripts from the radio program. While Carving Out can be confusing to navigate, it serves as a wonderful beginning resource for those interested in a basic education about development issues in the Pacific.
