About the project

Coastal Population Mapping



This collaborative project between SPC and Worldfish has been initiated in direct response to many requests SDD recieved for coastal population figures. These requests were coming primarily from food security and disaster management applications, but this type of data is also useful to many others.

As part of this initial project, we have endeavoured to estimate populations 1km, 5km and 10km from the coast. These distances are fairly arbitrary and represent those living on the coast, those who are within walking distance of the coast and then those who are possibly too far to walk to the coast (10km).
