The theme for this conference is “Bridging the Gap between Research and Policy for Sustainable Development in Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS).” This theme reflects the SEDU’s continued efforts to deepen discussions on how research institutions such as SEDU, international organisations such as UNESCO, and national and regional civil society can collaborate to bridge the gap between research and policy so that our countries can meaningfully achieve sustainable development.
