Survey on partnerships
In our endeavor to gather comprehensive insights and expertise from all stakeholders, we've created a survey which will inform the outputs of this process. We strongly all stakeholders involved in the sustainable development of SIDS to contribute their perspectives through this survey. Please note that all questions are optional, allowing you to skip those that may not be relevant or of interest to you. We appreciate everyone's participation and encourage to take the survey in its entirety or partially.
