Fridays for Climate | Waste management in Maldives & Barbados

Fridays for Climate | Waste management in Maldives & Barbados

ūüĆć The Maldives and Barbados are classiÔ¨Āed as Small Island Developing States (SIDS).  Before the COVID-19 outbreak, tourism was the main source of income. Both the Maldives and Barbados also rely on tourism for their economic ‚Äúrenaissance‚ÄĚ.

Making tourism sustainable implies taking care of the whole tourism value chain, including waste. It involves anticipating and acting to mitigate the effects of natural hazards, the degradation of ecosystems and the negative impacts on society and economic capacity.
 
The Implementing Sustainable Low and Non-Chemical Development in Small Island Developing States (ISLANDS) programme aiming to address chemical and waste management in SIDS globally, with a focus on countries in the Caribbean, and the PaciÔ¨Āc and Indian Oceans.
