SIDS-SIDS Success Stories: An Innovative Partnership in South-South Cooperation
An innovative partnership in South-South cooperation
The present SIDS-SIDS Success Stories aims to highlight significant achievements that have been made in advancing sustainable development in
small island developing States (SIDS) through collaboration among SIDS in the broader context of South-South cooperation. This publication is made available to the high-level meeting of the five-year review of the Mauritius Strategy of Implementation (MSI), during the 65th session of the United Nations General Assembly in September 2010.
Notwithstanding the unique and particular vulnerabilities of SIDS and their special case for sustainable development, these illustrative success stories under-line the importance of SIDS-SIDS cooperation for the effective implementation
of the MSI.
This publication is jointly prepared by the SIDS Unit of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN-DESA) and the United
Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Special Unit for South-South Cooperation, and is the result of a collaborative effort among members of the
SIDS Inter-Agency Consultative Group (IACG).
