Issues Wallis and Futuna faces

Currently Wallis and Futuna faces various issues, including deforestation (only small portions of the original forests remain) largely as a result of the continued use of wood as the main fuel source, as a consequence of cutting down the forests, the mountainous terrain of Futuna is particularly prone to erosion, there are no permanent settlements on Alofi because of the lack of natural fresh water resources.
