The Accelerator exists to catalyse and accelerate priority initiatives towards a “climate-smart” zone - it will do so by identifying and uniting commitments to building a more sustainable and resilient future for island nations through collaboration between national governments, regional and international institutions as well as public and private sector organisations.
The Accelerator will not duplicate existing efforts; it will serve to facilitate and share knowledge, helping to fast-track existing projects and catalyse innovative partnerships between countries and organisations.
