cousinThe UN has officially launched 2014 as the International Year of Small Island Developing States (SIDS) #islands2014

“The International Year is an opportunity to appreciate the extraordinary resiliency and rich cultural heritage of the people of small island developing States” — Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

The International Year of Small Island Developing States seeks to celebrate the contributions that this group of countries has made to the world. Small islands are home to vibrant and distinct cultures, and have enriched the world through their music, diversity and heritage.

Islanders are also at the forefront of efforts to protect the world’s oceans and their vast biodiversity, and are addressing pressing global issues such as climate change and rising sea levels through ingenuity, innovation and use of traditional knowledge.
