An virtual Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Solutions forum has been set for 30/31 August 2021.
FAO is organizing the first SIDS Solutions Forum with the aim to create a platform for knowledge
exchange and an enabling environment for these solutions to expand with catalytic impacts and investments.
The overall theme of the forum will be centered around COVID-19 impacts on the economy and how digitalization can be fostered to provide cost effective and quick solutions to
accelerate progress on resilient food systems; improve nutrition and health; and build climate resilience adaptation.
The forum aims to create a space for high-level officials and participants to discuss, share, promote and encourage home-grown digital innovations and imported solutions in the agriculture, food and nutrition sectors to respond to the challenges posed by COVID-19.
The President of the 76th Session of the UN General Assembly, Abdulla Shahid, has been confirmed as one of the keynote speakers during the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Solutions Forum set for 30 to 31 August 2021.
