About the Island Policy Lab
The IPL is passionately committed to finding solutions to the unique challenges faced by island nations and territories stemming from social, economic, environmental and natural resource factors. The IPL is a partnership between the UN Small Island Developing States (UN SIDS) and the University Consortium of Small Island States (UCSIS) formed to address island specific development issues in alignment with the goals and aspiration of the SAMOA Pathway, the Sustainable Development Goals and other international agreements.
Mission of the IPL
The mission of the IPL is to provide policymakers, corporate public and private leaders and the general public with data-driven and high quality analysis on sustainability issues in islands. The IPL also provides a shared, open knowledge sharing and transfer platform to strengthen SIDS universities capacity and SIDS government policy interventions. It aims to bring the power of academic rigor to generate innovative and applied policy-based solutions to islands’ problems.
