SAMOA PATHWAY

High-Level Midterm Review 2019

27 September 2019, New York

UNGA to conduct a High-Level Review of the SAMOA Pathway in 2019

The Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States was held from 1-4 September 2014 in Apia, Samoa. The Conference resulted in the adoption of the Small Island Developing States Accelerated Modalities of Action – or SAMOA Pathway and the announcement of 300 multi-stakeholder partnerships in support of SIDS. It also established a unique intergovernmental 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

On 27 September 2019, the General Assembly will hold a one-day high level review of the progress made in addressing the priorities of small island developing States (SIDS) through the implementation of the SAMOA Pathway. The General Assembly has decided that the high level review will result in "a concise action oriented and inter-governmentally agreed political declaration" .

In 2018, a series of regional preparatory meetings as well as an interregional meeting for SIDS were held to review the progress and implementation of the Samoa Pathway at the national and regional levels. These meetings were facilitated and supported by UN-DESA through the SIDS Unit, OHRLLS and by relevant agencies of the UN system including regional Commissions. A series of partnership dialogues have also been organized in the margins of the preparatory meetings to support the work of the SIDS Partnership Framework and the preparatory process related to the SAMOA Pathway mid-term review.
