* Source(s): World Bank, the (WB)
* Publication date: 2008
* Author(s): Sperling, Frank
* Number of pages: 103 p.

This report is an output of the project Adaptation Strategies to the Environmental and Socioeconomic Impacts of El Niño for Rural Communities in Ecuador and Peru supported by the Trust Fund for Environmental and Socially Sustainable Development (TFESSD) and led by the Climate Change Team of the World Bank’s Environment Department.

Peru is among the countries highly vulnerable to climatic variability and extremes. Climatic changes triggered by El Niño events have caused substantial economic losses. The report argues that, in the face of global environmental change, climate risk management is increasingly recognized for its essential role of ensuring the sustainability of development processes.

Berita dari kompas menyebutkan bahwa sekitar 1000 rumah terendam banjir. Bisa dibayangkan berapa besar kerugiannya?

Definisi pulau terluar adalah pulau dengan luas area kurang atau dengan 2000 Km2 (dua ribu kilometer persegi) yang memiliki titik-titik dasar kordinat geografis yang menghubungkan garis pangkal laut kepulauan sesuai dengan hukum internasional dan nasional. Pulau-pulau terluar tersebut berperan sebagai garis depan kedaulatan dan yurisdiksi Indonesia dan memiliki arti penting dalam penentuan batas teritorial Negara Kesatuan Republik Indonesia dengan negara tetangga. Dari pulau-pulau terluar ini terdapat titik-titik pangkal yang kemudian apabila diambil garis lurus akan membentuk garis pangkal kepulauan mencakup seluruh wilayah Indonesia serta dijadikan acuan untuk pengukuran lebar wilayah maritim Indonesia, antara lain untuk penentuan batas laut teritorial (12 mil laut), zona tambahan (24 mil laut), ZEE – Zona Ekonomi Eksklusif (200 mil laut), dan landas kontinen (hingga 350 mil laut atau lebih).
