SMILO (Small Islands Organisation) supports small islands of less than 150 km² in their sustainable development and management of their resources. It supports the integrated management of island territories in the areas of water & sanitation, waste, energy, biodiversity, landscapes and heritage.
The “Sustainable Islands” label rewards positive local dynamics and sustainable practices. Currently, 20 islands are involved in this labelling process. SMILO provides additional support through the Islands Fund, which finances concrete and sustainable operations on the ground.
In order to strengthen cooperation and solidarity between islands, SMILO also animates an international network of islands and island partners located in Europe, the Mediterranean, West Africa, the Indian Ocean and South-East Asia
