Commissioner Piebalgs calls for a stronger partnership with Small Islands Developing States


EU Development Commissioner, Andris Piebalgs, will represent the EU at the UN Third International Conference on Small Islands Developing States (SIDS), organised in Samoa from 1 to 4 September. The event, which takes place every 10 years, will aim to put in the spotlight the significant challenges that these small islands face, due to their small size, their isolation and their vulnerability to the effects of climate change. The Commissioner will confirm EU's renewed commitment to address the special needs and vulnerabilities of SIDS.  Commissioner Piebalgs will be in Samoa until September 2, and he will take the opportunity to visit some of the EU-funded projects, aiming among other things to providing drinking water to the population.
