Inter-regional conference calls

Every one to two months a conference call is arranged so that Small Islands Voice' coordinators from the different regions can talk to each other and provide updates on the various activities taking place in their islands, as well as identify and discuss emerging issues. A list of items to be covered during each call is circulated by e-mail about a week prior to the call. Each call usually lasts for about an hour. Because of the different time zones involved, participants from the Caribbean have to get up very early in the morning to take part, while in the Pacific, the opposite is the case as participants have to stay up late at night.

During the 29th October, 2002 inter-regional conference call, participants had the opportunity to discuss activities and future plans with the Seychelles Small Islands Voice Steering Committee. The Palau Coordinating Committee regularly takes part in each inter-regional conference call.
