dc.description.abstract Anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) and toxic chemicals in the atmosphere are causing increasing levels of contamination, pollution, and warming of the Earth’s surface at an unprecedented rate. Because of their intrinsic vulnerabilities, Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are particularly susceptible to the impacts of global climate change. Despite recent accomplishments and progress in achieving climate neutrality and ocean conservation, this research argues that SIDS continue to suffer severe impediments in the pursuit of sustainable development. en_US
