Introduction

The AIS Joint Research program promotes collaborative research initiatives involving multiple AIS countries, led by seasoned researchers and experts. Its objective is to address developmental and environmental challenges specific to AIS nations, with a focus on innovative solutions in climate change, blue economy, marine plastic debris, and maritime governance.

AIS Joint Research Program

The AIS Joint Research program is dedicated to fostering collaborative research endeavors among a minimum of two AIS countries. These Joint Research Projects should involve the active participation of stakeholders from different AIS nations. Each research team should be led by one or more seasoned researchers or experienced faculty members with expertise in the relevant research domains. The overarching goal of the Joint Research Program is to incentivize applied research that yields practical solutions to the pressing developmental and environmental challenges faced by AIS nations.

The primary aim of this initiative is to support the AIS Forum Secretariat in identifying innovative and intelligent strategies that can enhance cooperation among archipelagic and island states, particularly in the marine sector. A total of USD 60,000 grants will be provided to two winners (teams), to be used for research purposes in a 10 months research period. The winner will also get a chance to present their research findings in front of the head of state in the AIS Forum High-level Meeting 2023.

The AIS Forum is committed to providing financial support for various aspects of the project, including research management, fieldwork, and data collection activities. This funding extends to domestic and international travel required for project implementation, as well as the protection of intellectual property generated through the research. Additionally, the AIS Forum supports communication efforts and the dissemination of research findings, ensuring that the outcomes of the projects reach a broader audience and have a meaningful impact.

This multifaceted program endeavors to harness the collective intellectual resources of AIS countries to devise pragmatic solutions to complex challenges, thereby promoting the prosperity and sustainability of these regions.

After a sideline discussion at the Ocean Conference 2017 in New York City and a follow-up Conference on the Archipelagic and Island States Forum in Jakarta in 2017, a common understanding among AIS participating countries was born. The Archipelagic and Island States Forum was then formally established through the adoption of the Manado Joint Declaration during the first Ministerial Meeting of the participating countries on 1 November 2018.

The Archipelagic and Island States (AIS) Forum is a platform designed to include island states and archipelagic countries regardless of their region, size, and development level. A global initiative that brings together 51 archipelagic and island nations to take part in a collective forum addressing challenges of ocean resource usage for sustainable economic growth, climate change resiliency, ocean pollution, emergency management, and the enhancement of sustainable fisheries.

 

The Archipelagic and Island States (AIS) Forum stands as a visionary platform, purposefully crafted to encompass the participation of 51 diverse archipelagic and island nations from across the globe. Its overarching mission is to facilitate a collective forum aimed at addressing the pressing issue of sustainable development. Within this forum, these nations come together to forge international partnerships and foster cooperation in their shared commitment to sustainable development. By uniting their efforts and expertise, the AIS Forum plays a pivotal role in harnessing the collective power of these island states to tackle the environmental, economic, and social challenges they face while striving to build a more sustainable and interconnected world.
Five years after the establishment of the AIS Forum, leaders from AIS countries have agreed to strengthen commitment for collaboration among nations. On 11th October 2023 in Bali, Indonesia, at the First High Level Meeting of the AIS Foru,, 32 AIS countries agreed to adopt the Leaders’ Declaration on the Solidarity of the Archipelagic and Island States. The adoption of this declaration marked a significant step for the AIS Forum to further elevate its position in the global scheme. The Declaration focuses on four collaborative areas, which are:

Our Team offers an insightful glimpse into the exceptional individuals who comprise the driving force behind the Archipelagic and Island States (AIS) Forum. These dedicated professionals work cohesively to realize our mission and objectives. The AIS Forum, as a platform, is thoughtfully designed to incorporate the active participation of 51 archipelagic and island states from various corners of the world, uniting them within a collective forum to address the critical concerns of sustainable development.

The AIS Forum’s role is to facilitate close cooperation between archipelagic and island states in its four working areas. The forum has fostered connections and collaborative projects through its partnerships with private enterprises, government authorities, universities, NGOs, media and global or regional organisations. This approach aims to create a network of experts, researchers and policymakers who can provide insight and support to the AIS programme.
