Meeting of the Steering Committee on Partnerships for Small Island Developing States
1 Apr 2019 -  Meeting (at the ambassadorial level).
A key request from the outcome of the 2014 Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS) - the SAMOA Pathway - was the establishment of the SIDS Partnership Framework, designed to monitor progress of existing, and stimulate the launch of new, genuine and durable partnerships for the sustainable development of SIDS.
Guided by a member States driven Steering Committee, the framework has since its launch ensured that SIDS partnerships have remained high on the UN’s agenda, providing a multi-stakeholder platform for reviewing progress made by SIDS partnerships, and for sharing of good practices and lessons learned among all stakeholders, on an annual basis.
