The UN General Assembly (UNGA) will convene a one-day high-level meeting to review progress made on the SAMOA Pathway (SIDS Accelerated Modalities of Action). Negotiations on the outcome document of the midterm review are under way among UN Member States.
Regional preparatory meetings of small island developing States (SIDS) as well as an interregional meeting took place in 2018 to review progress at the national and regional levels, as mandated by the UNGA in a resolution of December 2017 on the follow-up and implementation of the SIDS Accelerated Modalities of Action (SAMOA) Pathway and the Mauritius Strategy. That resolution also requests the UN Secretary-General to submit to the 73rd UNGA a report on the follow-up to and implementation of the SAMOA Pathway, including progress made and continuing challenges faced.
