Among the Pacific Island Nations the small atoll island states in particular have the extremely fragile and vulnerable environment. Based on firsthand observations in two atolls, i.e. Majuro Atoll, the capital of the Republic of the Marshall Islands and Tarawa Atoll, the capital of the Republic of Kiribati, this paper reviews the geological history of atolls and the formation of groundwater, points out the vulnerability of freshwater resources, and reports upon the present waste management systems and challenges in the waste disposal and reduction in Majuro and South Tarawa.
