  • By UN-DESA/DSD on 1 Sep 2013
1 Sep 2013 - A redesigned website and logo have been launched for the Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS), which will take place from 1 to 4 September 2014 in Apia, Samoa. The Conference will focus the world's attention on a group of countries that remain a special case for sustainable development in view of their unique and particular vulnerabilities.

The SIDS Inter-Regional Preparatory Meeting (IPM), in preparation for the Third International Conference on SIDS, was held at the Hilton Barbados Resort, Bridgetown, Barbados during the period August 26 - 28, 2013. At the meeting, three regions presented their regional outcomes, as well debated SIDS positions and priorities to bring to the global process leading up to the SIDS Conference.

More information can be found on the redesigned website.
