Small Island Developing States Global Business Network


Global advocacy for the sustainable development of small island developing states through durable private sector partnerships


The Small Island Developing States Global Business Network (SIDS-GBN) by UN-OHRLLS harnesses the innovation of the private sector to achieve sustainable development in small island developing States (SIDS).

The network forges partnerships among SIDS regional private sector organisations and works towards strengthening inter-regional business alliances, encouraging international businesses to focus on SIDS as potential market opportunities and vice versa.

The SIDS-GBN also fosters greater awareness of the importance of sustainable development as a guide to promoting dynamic business sectors in line with the SAMOA Pathway and the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Sustainable Development Goals.




We have curated a list of international, national, regional and U.N. resources that offer support through various partnership arrangements, grants, investments and the like.
