Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, set forth in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development as part of the global commitment to development, will pose a challenge to the countries of the Caribbean subregion as they continue to face a number of vulnerabilities.

Subregional and national action will continue to be framed by the significant global platforms which will guide and support policies for advancing sustainable development in small island developing States through the implementation of the SIDS Accelerated Modalities of Action (SAMOA) Pathway, the Cairo Programme of Action on Population and Development, the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) outcomes, and an agenda for climate change adaptation. The key elements of these development platforms will be pursued in synergy with the Sustainable Development Goals, with a view to ensuring that work under the subprogramme continues to support Caribbean policymakers in promoting sustainable growth and development for the countries of the subregion. ECLAC will also continue to engage, under the subprogramme, in actively supporting the sustainable development aspirations of the non-self-governing and other territories in the Caribbean that are associate members of the Commission.
