Project ID 2210232021

SIDS are faced with several serious environmental challenges and are characterized by fragile natural environments mostly related to climate change, including sea-level rise and loss of biodiversity and ecosystem goods and services. UNESCO's Ecohydrology Programme is focused on an integrated understanding of biological and hydrological processes applying a scientific basis for a socially acceptable, cost-effective, and systemic approach to the sustainable management of freshwater resources. The activity will lead to the sustainable management of one SIDS BR using the ecohydrology approach and designation as a demonstration site. These actions will contribute to the SDGs, the AU Agenda 2063, and the SAMOA Pathway for biodiversity conservation in SIDS.
