    Concern over climate change continues to dominate the established inter-state gatherings of these islands. Here there is explicit recognition that beyond the existential threat posed by rising sea levels, the negative implications of climate change on say, food security must be addressed.

    The articles in this section underscore the need for ‘special attention’ to the Oceans. In this, the emphasis must be on better oceans governance at the national, regional and international levels, involving all relevant stakeholders, and working towards tangible improvements.
