> 1st International Conference on Governance for Sustainable
> Development of Caribbean Small Island Developing States
> 4-7 March 2011
> Willemstad, Netherlands Antilles
> Sponsored by: University of the Netherlands Antilles
> The governance of Caribbean Small Island Developing States (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.
> The objective of the UNESCO chair is: �To become an open center of
> collaborative excellence in the field of policy-oriented research on
> issues of Sustainable Development of SIDS in the context of
> globalization of the Caribbean, leveraging on the unique insights
> that can be provided by knowledge production processes based on
> participatory research, involving stakeholders in the Sustainable
> Development of SIDS.�
> This scientific conference is being held to discuss related issues
> and to share best practices.
> The deadline for abstracts/proposals is 15 September 2010.
