Samoa leads alliance of small states to amplify marginalized voices

Samoa leads alliance of small states to amplify marginalized voices

Saint John, Feb 1 (Prensa Latina) Samoa leads the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS) to amplify marginalized voices and defend common interests on the world scenario, after the transfer of power from Antigua and Barbuda.

At a plenary session here, Samoan Prime Minister Fiamē Naomi Mataʻafa pledged to continue the excellent work done by previous presidencies and, in particular, to secure group commitments and global agreements.

She outlined her new vision, focusing on climate change, sustainable development, including issues such as food security, energy, ocean health and greater funding ambition to support agreed goals.

Her counterpart from Antigua and Barbuda, Gaston Browne, said that he was placing the AOSIS presidency in the most capable hands after receiving it from Belize in the Caribbean.

We look forward to working with Samoa in preparing for the 4th United Nations International Conference for Small Island Developing States (SIDS) in 2024, he added.

The AOSIS plays a key role in international climate and sustainable development negotiations, while significantly contributing to the creation of a loss and damage fund at the recent COP27 in November 2023.
