UN General Assembly 67th session: Statement delivered at the General Debate - Grenada

A statement delivered to the 67th General Assembly annual General Debate by the Permanent Representative of the Grenada to the United Nations, in which she called on the United Nations General Assembly to designate 2014 as the International Year of Small Island Developing States to raise awareness of the special situation of SIDS and to mobilize international support for their sustainable development. She stressed that, without a legally binding climate regime to uphold environmental integrity, Caribbean and other small island states could lose the opportunity for achieving sustainability soon and some could even disappear.

She welcomed the commitment of the European Union to agree to an ambitious Second Commitment Period of the Kyoto Protocol and to climate financing, and called on other developed countries to do likewise and on the Secretary General to help States Parties move steadfastly toward the finalization of a new binding climate treaty by 2015 and a gap-less period of climate financing starting January 2013.
