Synopsis:

Ahead of the 3rd UN Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS), and in partnership with the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, the UNDP Global Centre for Public Service Excellence (GCPSE) is organising a half-day conference to consider the value of complexity-aware approaches to tackling development issues on SIDSs. It will focus on exploring the nonlinear nature of development and highlight that there are no simple answers, even in the SIDSs context. Learning from the ‘Singapore Story’, the conference aims to improve these countries’ capacities to access the skills, knowledge, resources and funding required to ensure the creation of adaptive policies for sustainable development.

The Honourable Lord Tu’ivakano, Prime Minister, Kingdom of Tonga
