This activity report presents the third session of the multi-year expert meeting, which focused on some of the particular transport and trade logistics challenges that the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) face in connection with their remoteness and geographical location. The report states that with SIDS being completely dependent on ports and airports, climate change risks such as rising sea levels, increasing temperatures and more frequent and/or intense storms pose serious threats to vital transport infrastructure, services and operations.
