Abstract: Profiling Vulnerability and Resilience: A Manual for Small States provides a tool for assessing both how prone a country is to external economic shocks - its vulnerability - as well as its ability to bounce back from those shocks - its resilience. The book explains how to conduct assessments that will allow each country to understand its relative vulnerability and resilience, and to identify priority areas for economic policy-making, so as to better cope with vulnerability and boost resilience. Detailed examples are provided for St Lucia, Seychelles and Vanuatu. For economic planners, as well as students of the economies of small states.
