The Interregional Preparatory Meeting for the Mid Term Review of the SAMOA Pathway will be held in Apia, Samoa, from 30 October to 1stNovember 2018. This Meeting will be preceded by the Interregional Partnerships Dialogue, on 29 October 2018

The Interregional Meeting is being held pursuant to paragraphs 27 and 28 of the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 72/217, which reaffirmed the 2016 General Assembly’s decision (A/RES/71/225) to convene a one-day high-level review, at United Nations Headquarters in September 2019, to review progress made in addressing the priorities of small island developing States through the implementation of the SAMOA Pathway. Paragraph 28 called for “regional preparatory meetings of small island developing States in their respective regions, as well as an interregional meeting for all small island developing States, in order to undertake a review of progress in the implementation of the Samoa Pathway at the national and regional levels.”

The Interregional Preparatory Meeting will allow SIDS an opportunity to review the outcomes of the three regional preparatory meetings and agree on a set of common priorities to be further advanced during the high-level review, and to discuss possible themes and desirable outcomes of the mid-term review. The Interregional Partnership Dialogue will provide SIDS with an opportunity to assess the status of partnerships for SIDS globally, with a view to identifying best practices and gaps and strengthen the review and monitoring process of SIDS partnerships.
