Informal communiqué

Following the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Symposium, held on 21-23 February 2017 in Nassau, The Bahamas on “Equipping public institutions and mobilizing partnerships”, the host country and DESA would like to thank all of you for the great discussion and engagement during the meeting.

An informal communiqué emanating from the dialogues and discussions at the Symposium was drafted at the conclusion of the Symposium, following which all participants were invited to share their comments and additional suggestions on the draft communiqué for a period of two weeks. In view of the wide scope of the subjects discussed at the Symposium, it was not possible to include all comments/suggestions in the informal communiqué.

The informal communiqué will inform the meetings of the UN oceans conference, high-level political forum on sustainable development, UN General Assembly, the Economic and Social Council and the UN Committee of Experts on Public Administration
