The Marshall Islands are exposed to a variety of natural hazards, including prolonged and repeated droughts, flooding from king tides, and storms and cyclones. Most residents live along coastlines, which are extremely vulnerable to coastal erosion, storm surges, and sea level rise. In the islands of Ebeye and Majuro – home to 74 percent of the total population –population density and concentration of public infrastructure is high, putting them at particular risk. The Marshall Islands faces serious hurdles in addressing stunting. Inadequate access to effective maternal and child health services; a lack of early learning opportunities; and critically, a limited availability of affordable nutritious diets, especially for children in vulnerable families, are all significant problems.
