Island innovations: leveraging the environment for the sustainable development of Small Island Developing States

The ‘Island Innovations’ publication is an effort carried out jointly by the UNDP and the GEF during the International Year for Small Island Developing States (SIDS). It showcases some of the most successful approaches and achievements emerging from SIDS, as the world discusses a set of new sustainable development goals for the post-2015 period. These innovative and successful projects feature the effectiveness and efficacy of UNDP-GEF development initiatives in the environment sector, through a broad range of actions, including conservation and sustainable use of critical marine and coastal resources, climate change mitigation, adaptation efforts and more.
