Providing Platforms for Coordination www.SIDS-net.
Development since WSSD

  • Road maps for further development
  • Milestones, Projects, Coordination mechanisms,

  • Partnership interest further developed (Network
  • UN PIF Missions developed a Road Map of how to
    market activities at the International level and

  • Initiative development, and lessons learnt, seen
    as important input to the BPoA10 pacific
  • Initiatives are taking their own development

Some Examples
  • Developments related to the Water Initiative
  • 2 new projects funded and being implemented
    outside of traditional funding systems

    now developing a regional waste management
    strategy for the region.

Next Steps?

    platforms for coordination.
  • Refine NARs where needed, identify priorities

    partnerships on, or using, these umbrella
    initiative platforms
  • Strengthen or build on mechanisms (reflective of
    3 pillars of SD) in country to promote
    coordination of national initiatives (WSSD task
  • Work towards providing a policy framework to
    support that mechanism (NSDS, integration into
    other national strategies, policys or plans)
