Data for all Caribbean SIDS are presented along with regional averages. Debt data were retrieved from the World Economic Outlook Database (IMF)2, and the regional averages were compiled with the pycountry_convert Python package. No debt data were available for Cuba. Travel and tourism data were retrieved from the World Travel and Tourism Council website (https://wttc.org/Research/Economic-Impact). No travel and tourism data were available for Guinea-Bissau. The colours of the dots represent the vulnerability of countries/regions determined on the basis of the ND-GAIN data (https://gain.nd.edu/our-work/country-index/). Vulnerability scores were rounded off to the first decimal; the darker the colour, the higher the vulnerability. There were no data available for St. Vincent and the Grenadines (light yellow).
