Many Strong Voices

Many Strong Voices bringing together the peoples of the Arctic and Small Island Developing States to meet the challenges of climate change including health 


Project Summary

Many Strong Voices promotes the well-being, security, and sustainability of coastal communities in the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Arctic by bringing these regions together to address climate change mitigation and adaptation, and disaster risk reduction.

MSV is a vehicle for partners to share their experiences and lessons learned - with each other and the world. MSV functions a consortium of partners who collaborate and volunteer their time and expertise, and who in turn receive support through the project. GRID-Arendal facilitates MSV.

Lessons learned through MSV help support policy development at local, regional, and international levels. They provide decision-makers in the two regions with the knowledge to safeguard and strengthen vulnerable social, economic, and natural systems.
