dc.descriptionThe United Nations General Assembly (GA) Resolution 63/213 (February 2009) reaffirmed the GA decision 62/191 to review the progress made in addressing the vulnerabilities of small island developing states through the implementation of the Mauritius Strategy for the Further Implementation of the Programme of Action for the Sustainable Development of Small Island Developing States (MSI). The Resolution stressed ‘that the review should provide the international community with an opportunity to conduct an assessment of the progress made, lessons learnt and constraints encountered in the implementation of the MSI and agree on what needs to be done to further address the vulnerabilities of SIDS’.Barbados has met and even exceeded many of the targets set by the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Barbados has also been able to highlight some of its successes in its annual Commission for Sustainable Development (CSD) reports. Barbados still remains one of the few countries in the Western Hemisphere to develop and implement a national policy for sustainable development. The Barbados Sustainable Development Policy (BSDP) is our National Sustainable Development Strategy (NSDS) which provides a national framework, guidelines and principles that we can employ in our everyday activities. The policy promotes a motto of “Doing the right thing by doing things right!”
