The Global Island Partnership, along with our member Hawaii Green Growth, last year launched a new island network focussed on SDG implementation. This network, the Local2030 Islands Network has launched a virtual platform for islands on COVID-19 to communicate challenges and draw strength from shared solutions, as part of the network’s mission to connect and strengthen island leadership on sustainable development and resilience.
The platform hosts virtual convenings focused on responding to COVID-19 with early themes identified by islanders. The first convening addressed the COVID-19 related disruptions to the tourism economy and explored opportunities for building back better. The recording and key takeaways from the session can be found here.
The next virtual convening will take place on May 19th, 18.00 UTC, and will discuss island approaches and issues on food security. Participants can register for the session at this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_bDFHnBzMSGuBMdd-n-5tWQ
