What’s in it for Small Island Developing States presents key findings from the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) for Small Island Developing States (SIDS). It extracts SIDS-specific data, trends and analysis directly from AR5, summarising it in a short volume to make it accessible to all audiences, and highlights key opportunities to achieve adaptation, mitigation and development.
Decent work and social justice are building blocks for sustainable development. Productive employment that provides adequate livelihoods, social protection and respect for worker rights is an essential element of environmental, social and economic sustainability.While economic, social and labour market circumstances differ markedly, important decent work deficits exist in the majority of SIDS.
