Environmental Vulnerability Index (EVI) Study:Phase II (continued) The primary aim of this project is to develop a vulnerability index for the environment which could be calculated on the scale of entire states for the purpose of ranking them and providing a single- figure expression of their relative environmental vulnerabilities. Phase II of the EVI was undertaken in 1999. The primary goal of this next phase was to obtain extensive international peer review on the SOPAC environmental vulnerability study team's proposed methodology for determining environmental vulnerability. This was facilitated through the convening of an International Expert Group Meeting on Environmental Vulnerability in Pacific Harbour, Fiji from the 7-10 September 1999 ( SOPAC Technical Report 299) . An important part of this phase has been the identification. collection and collation of environmental vulnerability data from several countries including Fiji, Samoa Tuvalu and Vanuatu.
