MSI +5 High-level Review Preparations

i. National Assessment Reports

In preparation for this High-Level event, SIDS Member States were requested to submit national assessment reports based on specific guidelines. These reports, complemented by information received from UN agencies, regional organizations and NGOs, formed the basis for three regional review meetings that were held in the Caribbean, Pacific and AIMS regions in early 2010.

ii. Three Regional Review Meetings & an Inter-regional Review Meeting

Three regional meetings (for the AIMS, Caribbean and Pacific regions) were held in preparation for the two-day high-level review of the Mauritius Strategy for the Further Implementation of the Barbados Programme of Action for the Sustainable Development of SIDS, to be conducted at the sixty-fifth session of the General Assembly pursuant to resolution A/RES/63/213: [Arabic | Chinese | English | French | Russian | Spanish].
