Themes

The Third International Conference on Small Island Developing states was held in Apia Samoa (1-4 September, 2014). An outcome from the conference is a new set of themes listed below, from the S.A.M.O.A Pathway A/RES/69/15 
Note:The existing themes will remain for a transitional period as we are updating the SIDSnet platform.

The document was created with the full participation of civil society and relevant stakeholders with the intention of reaffirming the commitment to the sustainable development of small island developing States made at United Nations conferences and summits on sustainable development including: The Rio Declaration, Agenda 21, the Programme for the Further Implementation of Agenda 21, the Plan of Implementation of the World Summit on Sustainable Development (Johannesburg Plan of Implementation including chapter VII on the sustainable development of small island developing States) and the Johannesburg Declaration on Sustainable Development, the Programme of Action for the Sustainable Development of Small Island Developing States (Barbados Programme of Action-BPOA) and the Mauritius Strategy for the Further Implementation of the Programme of Action for the Sustainable Development of Small Island Developing States (MSI); and the outcome document of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development entitled “The future we want.” This document will build on the issues, concerns, and opportunities highlighted in documents that came before it and will hope to achieve the future we want for present and future generations".
