President Michel co-chairs the Global Island Partnership (GLISPA), which brings together world leaders to promote action on the conservation and sustainability of islands. Under his leadership, GLISPA has mobilized political support for the blue economy and marine protected areas within island regions of the world. Sustainable development that reduces the vulnerability of Small Island States to climate change, food, and energy crises remains at the forefront of President Michel’s agenda. His exemplary leadership appeals to the conscience of world leaders for the future of humanity.
