The Many Strong Voices programme is a unique alliance between the Arctic and Small Island Developing States (SIDS) that aims to ensure the well-being of these regions in the face of climate change.

The Stakeholder Workshop was held in order to discuss the latest research and assessments on climate change vulnerability and adaptation in the Arctic and SIDS and to begin developing a five-year Action Plan for the Many Strong Voices programme. Workshop participants identified priorities for the programme in the areas of influencing policy makers, communications and outreach, and research and assessments.

The workshop was coordinated by GRID-Arendal, based in Norway, and the Center for International Climate and Environmental Research – Oslo (CICERO), and hosted by the CARICOM Climate Change Centre, based in Belmopan, Belize. The participants represented communities and organizations in the Arctic and SIDS and came from 16 countries and regions, including Alaska, the Caribbean, Norway, Fiji, the Canadian Arctic, Micronesia, Greenland and French Polynesia.
