SIDS National Focal Points

The United Nations Office of the High Representative for Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States (UN-OHRLLS) convened the inaugural SIDS National Focal Points (NFPs) meeting on 29 October, 2018 in Apia, Samoa on the margins of the Inter-Regional Preparatory Meeting for the Mid-Term Review of the SAMOA Pathway

The NFP meeting launched the network of SIDS national focal points to enhance the coherence of SIDS issues in UN processes, including at the national, regional and global levels, by providing a vital link between the global and national levels facilitating coordination, information sharing and planning on the implementation of the SAMOA Pathway and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The NFP meeting also provided national focal points with the opportunity to participate in the Inter-regional Preparatory Meeting of the Midterm Review of the SAMOA Pathway offering a unique opportunity to: i) share experiences and best practices on mainstreaming the SAMOA pathway and SDGs into national development processes as well their implementation and follow up, ii) network, and iii) better understand existing means of implementation, including viable financing and business models.
