Abstract: The first Global Conference on the Sustainable Development of Small Island Developing States (SIDS) convened in Barbados in 1994. The purpose of the gathering was to examine national and international strategies, and adopt plans and programmes intended to enable these territories and their limited resources to undergo development in a sustainable manner, while enhancing in them the coping mechanisms and human skills necessary to pursue sustainable development. The Barbados Conference was a spinoff from the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development - known as the Earth Summit - which met in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. The purpose of the Summit was to debate a challenging list of pressing environmental issues known as Agenda 21, and follow this up with the implementation of an action plan.
