Abstract: This study is an exploratory undertaking in the framework of the MIRAB model, which was originally formulated by Bertram and Watters in 1985. There have been several studies conducted to acknowledge the economic status and development of Tuvalu in the past which were either based on or modified/extended the MIRAB model for the country. Yet, this study is unique in trying to explain why it is important to start development from grassroots, which are the local communities in the case of Tuvalu.
