Steve MacFeely: Constructing a criteria-based classification for Small Island Developing States – An Investigation

We cordially invite you to a lecture by Professor Steve MacFeely, Director of Data and Analytics at World Health Organization (WHO), Geneva, Switzerland.

What makes an island a Small Island Developing State (SIDS)?
What are the unique features or characteristics that single out some islands from the thousands of others?

Depending on the criteria (or lack of) being used, there are several SIDS classifications being used by UN or international organizations. While there is no universally agreed definition for SIDS, there is a broad consensus that SIDS are typically characterized as remote, with high vulnerability to economic and environmental shocks, and with an inability to capitalize on economies of scale.

This presentation investigates what make a SIDS a SIDS and whether a criteria-based classification is possible and what it might look like.

The lecture will be held within the subjec BPM_AOME Quantitative Methods.

Organized by
doc. Mgr. Maria Králová, Ph.D.
