Tuesday, April 23, 2024, 10:00pm-11:00pm EDT.

Small Island Developing States (SIDS) face unique social, economic, and environmental vulnerabilities, and must rapidly accelerate their transition to sustainable economies.

Featured panelists:

  • Marko van Waveren Hogervorst, PFAN Programme Manager, UNIDO
  • Andy Isbister, A/g Director, Blended Finance and Investor Engagement Unit, Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
  • Paul Makumbe, Regional Director, Pacific, Camco
