Small Islands Voice

Go to the Small Islands Voice website.

Small Islands Voice is an inter-regional initiative focusing on small islands - both small island developing states, and islands with other affiliations - in the Caribbean, Indian Ocean and Pacific regions. The goal of this initiative is to make the general public in small islands more clearly heard, and to strengthen the public's influence in island development.

Small Islands Voice works with villages, specific interest groups, and sometimes entire islands, by building capacity so that islanders can more effectively plan and implement their own vision of sustainable development. Exchanging experiences inter-regionally through the program is intended to further strengthen a sense of community amongst islands.

It is an initiative within UNESCO's program on the Environment and development in coastal regions and in small islands.
