The big issues facing small island developing states (SIDS) were the focus of debate in the UN Security Council on Thursday.

These challenges include tackling climate change, combatting transnational organized crime and meeting development goals.

Although they comprise less than 40 countries, SIDS span from the Caribbean to Africa and the Pacific. They are also located in the Indian Ocean and the South China Sea.
