    September 3, 2014 - U.S. Engagement with Pacific Small Island Developing States

    A Pacific nation itself, the United States not only shares the same values as its neighbors, it understands their hopes and aspirations and seeks to assist the peoples and nations of the Pacific as they strive to realize them.

    The Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Conference in Apia, Samoa marks our continuous engagement with the Pacific region and demonstrates our commitment to partnering with the Pacific SIDS to address local and global challenges, such as ocean and environmental conservation, climate change, renewable energy, sustainable development, and health. Secretary of State John Kerry’s “Our Ocean" Conference in Washington, D.C. and the Pacific Islands Forum and Post–Forum Dialogue Meetings in Koror, Palau have also strengthened our Pacific partnerships. Through a variety of programs, the United States government is increasing and better targeting its foreign assistance to jointly address these topics.
