Major Groups and other Stakeholders Forum
As part of the preparations for the Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS) to be held in Apia, Samoa on 1-4 September 2014, a pre-conference forum will be held on 29 August 2014.
This Forum will focus on identifying durable partnerships through which the sustainable development of SIDS can be promoted. The outcome of the Forum will help to inform the Conference plenary discussions and Multi-Stakeholder Partnership Dialogues.
The aim of this Forum is to provide a space for Major Groups, civil society and other stakeholders to receive final briefings on the upcoming conference, its relation to Rio+20, Post 2015, UNFCCC, Beijing+20 review and other upcoming regional and global multilateral follow-up processes, and to participate in joint advocacy and partnerships to support implementation of the conference outcome.
