Island Innovations UNDP and GEF: Leveraging the Environment for the Sustainable Development of Small Island Developing States

Small Island Developing States (SIDS) face extraordinary and unique sustainable development challenges as a result of their small size, remoteness, narrow resource and export base, and high dependency聽 on imported fossil fuel. At the same time, SIDS are extraordinarily dependent on healthy ecosystems and a stable climate. Nature-based activities account for a large share of economic activity and job opportunities in SIDS. This publication, 鈥業sland Innovations 鈥 UNDP and GEF: Leveraging the Environment for the Sustainable Development of SIDS鈥, demonstrates that far from succumbing to these challenges, SIDS have time and聽 again risen to the task of managing their fragile environments to meet their sustainable development goals.
