Caribbean experts to discuss Samoa Pathway implementation

13 de marzo de 2015|Noticias

Caribbean experts will meet in Saint Lucia on Sunday 15 March 2015, to discuss strategies for implementing the Sids Accelerated Modalities for Action (SAMOA) Pathway in the region.

Discussions will include consideration of a strategic alignment of the Pathway with the Sustainable Development goals being considered within the framework of the Post 2015 Development Agenda.

Known as the “SIDS Accelerated Modalities for Action”, the SAMOA Pathway is the outcome document of the Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS), which was held in Apia, Samoa from 1-4 September 2014. Approved by the United Nations, this  intergovernmental agreement serves as the blueprint for the SIDS’ approach to addressing their continuing sustainable development challenges.

The meeting will focus on priority elements in the SAMOA Pathway for the Caribbean, and on a proposal for strategic alignment of the Pathway with the Sustainable Development Goals and the Post 2015 Development Agenda, which will be formally approved by the United Nations General Assembly in September this year.
