Regional policy harmonisation as a bridge between global and national policy arenas: The St. George’s Declaration on Principles for Environmental Sustainability in the Eastern Caribbean

The St. George’s Declaration of Principles for Environmental Sustainability in the OECS (SGD) is an environmental policy framework adopted by the Member States of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) in 2001 and reaffirmed in a revised form in 2006. The SGD is in many respects an effort to respond to a rapidly evolving global policy environment in a manner that reflects the contexts and priorities of the small island states that comprise the OECS.
