Alliance of Small Island States Leaders' Declaration, 2014

This declaration was formally endorsed by The Heads of Delegation from the Alliance of Small Island States gathered at the Third International Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and outlines their vision for sustainable development and the concrete steps needed to implement it. It calls for the post-2015 framework for disaster risk reduction to take into account the special case and particular vulnerabilities of SIDS and highlights the urgent need to address the security implication of climate change, including violation of territorial integrity, existential threat, more frequent and severe climate related disasters, threats to water and food security, increased natural resource scarcity, and forced displacement and the human dimensions of climate change, including where necessary, initiatives for preparing communities for relocation.

The Leaders from the coalition of 43 low-lying and coastal countries from around the world issued this declaration to accelerate progress on the implementation of sustainable development goals in SIDS, which face a unique set of challenges in overcoming poverty and building sustainable 21st Century economies.
