  • A Future for SIDS: The Post 2015 Development Agenda in St. LuciaA Future for SIDS: The Post 2015 Development Agenda in St. Lucia2015 represents the end of an ambitious cycle in the international development agenda, and at the same time, a tremendous opportunity to review the priority areas and improve the ways in which we address them.


Poverty Reduction is set out as the first of the Millennium Development Goals. With one fifth of the planet's people living on less than $1 a day, poverty remains an important issue impacting not only those effected, but society as a whole. Poverty is often only recognized when associated with mortal outcomes. Yet, poverty in Barbados and the OECS has a different, less obvious face. Although people may not be starving, their standard of living is poor and caught in the vicious cycle.
