• About Us

    Since 1990, AOSIS has represent the interests of the 39 small island and low-lying coastal developing states in international climate change, sustainable development negotiations and processes. As a voice for the vulnerable, its mandate is more than amplifying marginalized voices as it also advocates for these countries’ interests. In terms of size, AOSIS closely resembles the countries it represents on the global stage, but often punches far above its weight, negotiating historic global commitments to cut greenhouse gas emissions, among other achievements.

AOSIS Member States

To be a small island and/or a low-lying coastal state is to be vulnerable to a host of challenges—from the environmental to the geo-political to the social, which have only grown more severe over time. Many of our member states walk a tightrope, developing new strengths and marshaling existing ones to help them reach towards the—seemingly unattainable—goal of sustainable development. But, we press on with the belief that together we can create change, and be a voice for the vulnerable.
