Promoting action to build resilient and sustainable island communities

Members

Why Join The Partnership

The Global Island Partnership is a voluntary and inclusive partnership of island champions - countries and organisations - who inspire and support each other to take action and produce results for island communities. GLISPA members benefit from being able to:

  • Leverage the Partnership’s strong network of political leaders (heads of state, ministers, governors, ambassadors) who act as champions to leverage financial, political, and institutional support for island action.

  • Connect and collaborate with partners from across political jurisdictions to support the implementation of commitments, the scaling of solutions, and to track progress in relation to the SDGs.

  • Strategize with other members and partners to strategically frame island issues and show how islands can provide scalable solutions to global challenges.

  • Incubate, launch and strengthen high-impact initiatives to move forward mutual priorities.
