      >Dear Graeme,

      >IUCN and the Commission on Ecosystem Management,
      >in collaboration with the Secretariat for the
      >Convention on Biological Diversity, have jointly
      >developed the following on-line questionnaire
      >addressing the issue of capacity building in
      >small island developing states. We would be
      >grateful if you would be able to forward this
      >questionnaire on to your network list.

      >Many thanks in advance,

      >Small island developing states (SIDS) throughout
      >the world face unique and shared development
      >challenges - whether environmental, economic, or
      >social in origin – and in most cases have
      >limited resources to address these challenges.
      >One of the frequent concerns faced is the need
      >for capacity development to assist in finding
      >local solutions to tackle these concerns.
      >Capacity building, technology transfer, and the
      >notion of sharing knowledge and information are
      >cited frequently in studies on Small Island
      >Developing States, and represent important
      >components of the Convention on Biological
      >Diversity
      ><http://www.biodiv.org/decisions/default.aspx?m=COP-08&id=11013&lg=0>Programme
      >of Work on SIDS. The present survey is intended
      >to produce a clear articulation of the specific
      >demand from small island developing states for
      >capacity strengthening in ecosystem management
      >and restoration, and of how that demand can be
      >met most effectively.

      >IUCN The World Conservation Union and The
      >Commission on Ecosystem Management, in close
      >collaboration with the Secretariat of the
      >Convention on Biological Diversity and with
      >support from the Italian Government, are
      >exploring ways in which key local capacity needs
      >in these areas can be met in the most effective
      >and equitable manner possible. But we need to

      >questionnaire takes 15 to 20 minutes to
