At the Financing the Resilience of SIDS conference held in Antigua and Barbuda on May 21-22, representatives of SIDS and other stakeholders met to discuss and identify possible pathways on critical issues facing SIDS. The issues covered related to the challenges and opportunities for SIDS and recognized that resilience in this context is multifaceted and includes the economic, social, and environmental pillars of sustainable development. Resilience for SIDS must also reflect the vulnerability to climate-induced risks and shocks. In reaffirming the commitments and recognition of the special status of SIDS included in the Sustainable Development Goals, Paris Agreement, SAMOA Pathways, Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and Financing for Development Outcome Statements, participants focused on and called for strong action on key themes which are described in this “Call for Action” outcome document.
