COVID-19 Island Insights Series

The COVID-19 Island Insights Series is an initiative led by the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law & Governance (SCELG) and the Institute of Island Studies in collaboration with Island Innovation. The Series aims to bring together critical assessments of how specific islands around the world have performed during the COVID-19 pandemic and the extent to which their recovery plans are able to promote long term resilience and sustainability.

The COVID-19 Island Insights Series aims to be a tool for policy-makers and wider island-related stakeholders, to assist and encourage islands to move to a more resilient and sustainable future.
We look forward to working with policy-makers and stakeholders towards the launch of concrete policy recommendations at COP26.
