1st International Conference on Governance for Sustainable Development of Caribbean Small Island Developing States

04 - 07 March 2011, Willemstad, Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles

The governance of Caribbean SIDS for sustainable development is a big challenge. Besides nature human behavior puts a lot of pressure on the development. Phenomena like earthquakes (Haiti 2010) and hurricanes are examples.

But also the raising of the sea level and scarcity of water due to climate change are serious threads. But to often the issue of sustainability is reduced to “Planet” issues, putting the issues related to “People” and “Profit’ on a second level.
