Collectively, NGOs are planning to integrate
their perspectives and approaches to the sustainable development of
SIDS into the work of the Conference. The details of the parallel
NGO activities in Barbados are in the process of being finalized.
The activities, under the coordination of the NGO Liaison
Committee, chaired by Caribbean Conservation Association, are
divided into three sections which will focus on alternate
appropriate sustainable development models:
- The NGO Forum is a series of workshops and briefings which will examine special issues and challenges associated with current development patterns and models, and also develop an action plan for alternative models.
- The Village of Hope is a multi-pronged exposition of ideas and examples of sustainable development for island communities showcasing indigenous, traditional and innovative approaches.
