The meeting is being run in association with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office

 

The challenge of economic growth for small island economies is magnified by their unique geographic situation and their exposure to climate-based risk.

This meeting examined how local and international policymakers, investors, academics, civil society and communities can make better use of the tools available to mitigate those risks and work together more cooperatively, learning best practice from one another in order to support commerce and economic development.

What are the conditions under which improvements can be made? How can small island states ‘future-proof’ their markets, workforces and natural resources in an increasingly volatile world?
