Small island developing states (SIDS) are being threatened with extinction because of rising sea-levels. While there has been a heightened focus on the risks SIDS face in recent years, more awareness is needed.Climate change is a stark reality for SIDS communities experiencing water shortages, damage to food crops from saltwater intrusion and an increase in epidemic outbreaks of diseases such as dengue linked to climate-related hazards. The Maldives, in particular, is well placed to raise awareness on cliamte change, as the chair of the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS), a coalition of 39 member states, through agreement on sustainable development, climate change, disaster risk reduction, financing for development and sustainable urbanization.

Furthermore, this seminar will examine how the European Union can be a crucial partner for the Maldives and other SIDS in their climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts through initiatives such as the Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA+), which supports SIDS in adapting to the impacts of climate change and integrating climate change resilience in their national development plans.
