This special edition of the UNDP SIDS Bulletin provides a take on 2021 in retrospect in the interconnected sectors of Blue Economy, Digital Transformation, Climate Action and Data in SIDS. It is time to reflect on what an important and complex year 2021 has been for Small Island Developing States (SIDS).

Despite the challenges of more frequently occurring extreme weather events, compounded with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and vaccine inequity, SIDS have proven themselves frontrunners in many aspects of sustainable development. As we look back on this past year, SIDS have been incubators of innovation, playing an active role in improving their development models. Below is our take on 2021 in retrospect in the interconnected sectors of Blue Economy, Digital Transformation, Climate Action and Data in SIDS, as well as selected reading and viewing recommendations.

On behalf of the UNDP SIDS team, we wish you and your loved ones a happy holiday season and a happy new year.
