Title of Research:

Innovation Governance and the Green Economy: A Look at Small Island Developing States (SIDS)

Brief overview of research topic:

SIDS produce less than 1% of global greenhouse gases, yet are among the planet’s most vulnerable countries regarding climate change (UNEP, 2014) where several problems have affected the advancement of such states ranging from food security to energy. Concerning sustainable development, the global community has become more conscious of such issues related to the environment. Within this framework, green innovation may be examined which incorporates not only new technologies but also non-technological changes. Research shall seek to identify and evaluate varying options of green transition strategies for SIDS that may be applicable to policy makers and other key active stakeholders.
