SIDS Ecosystem Restoration Flagship

The SIDS Coalition for Nature is a formal partner of the SIDS Flagship. Under the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021–2030, the SIDS Flagship aims to promote the integration of marine and coastal ecosystem restoration/conservation and sustainable blue finance into economic recovery and growth in 3 SIDS through a connected ‘ridge to reef” approach in order to build back better and bluer.

By putting marine and coastal ecosystems at the heart of economic policy and decision-making, this initiative aims to guide and document transformative investments unlocking blue economy potential at SIDS level and in turn inspire further actions. The SIDS Flagship is co-led by the Governments of St Lucia, Vanuatu and Comoros, with the technical support of UNDESA, UNEP, and FAO. This flagship is funded by the German and Danish governments through the UN Decade Multi-Partners Trust Fund.
