On 22 March 2020 the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law and Governance (SCELG) started a survey aiming to better understand how COVID-19 was being dealt with on islands. SCELG partnered with Island Innovation and together they reached out to their island network.
The report highlights trends during the containment phase of the pandemic and lays out some practical recommendations for island policy makers and stakeholders in moving beyond COVID-19. With information from 83 islands in 52 countries around the world, the reports presents some key messages followed by a more detailed analysis of the answers to each of the survey questions. The final part of the report opens a conversation and suggests a practical platform to move beyond COVID-19 in order to promote a more resilient and sustainable future.
