About this site

The Daily Digester

We bring you Vanuatu news stories sourced from Vanuatu media outlets and other news organisations that cover Vanuatu, with added commentary, opinion, analysis and items of interest about Vanuatu.

We offer a critical perspective on events and issues in Vanuatu. We stand for media freedom, open democracy, transparency in government, better delivery of services and greater accountability from our elected representatives. We are independent of any political grouping.


This website is the product of a group of enquiring minds – not a single individual.

Vanuatu Digest’s Managing Editor is Nick Howlett.

The Daily Digest column is written by Bob Makin.

All other stories, comment and opinion are collected and published by our team, posting as ‘Vanuatu Digest’. These are not by Bob. Author bylines are included with opinion pieces.

We invite all readers to comment on individual posts on this blog, and we also welcome longer opinion pieces, regardless of viewpoint. Please submit your article ideas to info@vanuatudigest.com.
