Commitment

In September 2014, at the Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS)—which adopted the Small Island Developing States Accelerated Modalities of Action (SAMOA) Pathway to guide genuine and durable partnerships towards sustainable development (A/CONF.223/3)—more than 300 new partnerships were registered, addressing a wide range of priority areas including access to technologies. Initiatives included the South-South Technology Transfer Facility for SIDS, which will mobilize nearly $5 million to transfer technology in areas such as health and agriculture; other programmes will strengthen the ability of SIDS to manage the anticipated consequences of climate change.
