Global Islands Network

"Habitat Scotland, an independent environmental research charity based on the Isle of Skye since 1980, has been responsible for putting forward the whole Global Islands Network (GIN) concept. The origins of GIN can be traced back to 1994 when their Director attended the United Nations Global Conference on the Sustainable Development of Small Island Developing States and the parallel NGO Islands Forum held in Barbados."
