We provide scientific, policy and analytical support to assist Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs) in the UNFCCC, Green Climate Fund and related climate negotiations and fora. Based on the latest science, we provide on-demand technical, political, strategic and legal briefings and advice to negotiators, with the aim of supporting the establishment of an effective and legally binding multilateral climate regime. We also support other stakeholders, including international organisations, governments and NGOs.
