The COE actively seeks collaborations to promote ways for islands to become more sustainable. As a follow-up to the face-to-face training held in November of 2016 on building sustainable roadmaps, the COE is providing SIDS with in-county technical assistance through the expertise of our partner TNO in 2017 and 2018. Our first in-country training was held in Antigua & Barbuda this past October and focused on waste management. Next up are Jamaica, Seychelles, Vanuatu, Dominican Republic and Belize. The COE will be sharing lessons learned from these missions with all SIDS.
