SIDS Partnership Dialogue
25 Jun 2015
Conference Room 3, UNHQ
An informal event organized by Maldives and UN-DESA. Open to all to attend.
As a follow-up to the Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States
(SIDS Conference), an informal SIDS Partnership Dialogue was held on 25 June 2015, from 1.15 - 3 PM in Conference Room 3.
The event provided an opportunity for:
· Reviewing progress of partnerships
and initiatives launched and recognized at the SIDS Conference, with a focus on how those partnerships and initiatives are advancing the Samoa Pathway. Where are partnerships working? And where are they falling short? Do the partnerships themselves address SIDS priorities?
· Launching new partnerships
and initiatives of all stakeholders, in support of the implementation of the SAMOA Pathway and other internationally agreed commitments for SIDS
· Interactive and focused discussions
on key priorities related to SIDS, including on the SIDS Partnership Framework, and how SIDS partnerships can advance the priority areas identified in the post-2015 development agenda and the sustainable development goals. Also to address the ways that the SIDS Partnership Framework could serve as a model and good practice for implementation, follow-up and review in the post-2015 context.
