The Small Island Future Fest is an important modality which aims to meet the capacity building objective of the programme, i.e. enhancing and strengthening capacities of NGOs/CBOs to engage in consultative processes, apply knowledge management to ensure information flows, implement convention guidelines, and monitor and evaluate environmental impacts and trends. It is an efficient mechanism to network and share experiences among the SGP grantees on one hand and to consolidate their capacity to influence the policy development processes through participation in events with key influential individuals or institutions on the other hand, as the Small Island Future Fests can be held in connection or in partnership with national conferences and development partners.
