Network on Climate Change in SIDS and the Arctic

February 13th, 2011 by

The network Many Strong Voices (MSV) now has a website featuring key documents and articles on Climate Change in Small Island Developing States and the Arctic (SIDS).

The goal of Many Strong Voices is to promote the well-being, security, and sustainability of coastal communities in the Arctic and SIDS by bringing these regions together to take action on climate change mitigation and adaptation, and to tell their stories to the world.

The Arctic and SIDS are barometers of global environmental change. They are considered critical testing grounds for the ideas and programmes that will strengthen the adaptive capacities of human societies confronting climate change.

Lessons learned through MSV will support policy development at local, regional, and international levels. They will provide decision makers in the two regions with the knowledge to safeguard and strengthen vulnerable social, economic, and natural systems.
