Current Affair 1:



The Fourth United Nations Conference on Small Island Developing States (SIDS4) held recently in Antigua and Barbuda with unanimous support for a bold new 10-year plan of action that will deliver meaningful change for this group of vulnerable countries.

The major outcome of the SIDS4 Conference, The Antigua and Barbuda Agenda for SIDS (ABAS) - a Declaration for Renewed Prosperity - puts forth a new, ambitious pathway for SIDS’ sustainable development.

The three geographical regions in which SIDS are located are: the Caribbean, the Pacific, and the Atlantic, Indian Ocean and South China Sea (AIS).

SIDS were recognized as a special case both for their environment and development at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
