During the annual general debate of the Second Committee, the Maldives set out its priorities for the current session of the General Assembly, that will lay the groundwork for the crucial agreements to be reached in 2015 on climate change and the Post-2015 Development Agenda.


Referring to the recently held Third International Conference on SIDS in Samoa, the Maldives argued that SIDS face unique challenges in striving for sustainable development, as clearly seen from the Maldives experience. Though the country graduated from LDC status in 2011, “the inherent structural challenges of being an archipelago of small, low-lying and remote islands remain". Therefore, the Maldives expects the Secretary General's comprehensive review of the UN system support to SIDS would enhance its overall effectiveness and the respective roles in supporting SIDS sustainable development.
