Fatato is an uninhabited islet (motu) of Funafuti, Tuvalu.[1] In 2002 the Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN) chose this island for a systematic study of its coast in relation to the impact of global climate change on atolls.[2] The islet can be accessed by foot with a 20-30 minute walk from Fongafale across the reef at low tide.[2]
