2016 Call for Global Action for Partnerships for SIDS

The Small Island Developing States Partnership Framework has been established to ensure the full implementation of pledges and commitments through partnerships for Small Island developing States, as well as to encourage new genuine and durable partnerships for the sustainable development of SIDS. The framework consist, in short, of

  • A Steering Committee, now chaired by Maldives and Italy
  • The organization of an annual Global Multi-stakeholder SIDS Partnership Dialogue
  • A partnership reporting template for the purpose of informing all stakeholders on the progress of SIDS partnerships

The reporting template, and an upgraded SIDS Action Platform, is now available at www.sids2014.org

All focal points of SIDS partnerships are encouraged to engage and share their partnership updates through the established template, once a year until their partnership is completed.

Inputs to the template will be used to inform the work of the Steering Committee, to prepare relevant reports by the Secretary-General of the United Nations, be regularly featured in UN websites, social media channels, and newsletters, as well used for preparing a publication on Partnerships for SIDS as input to the 2016 Global Multi-stakeholder Partnership Dialogue, scheduled for September 2016. In addition, submitted inputs will be used to inform the 2030 Agenda follow-up and review process at the High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development.
