SIF is working in close collaboration with CES to help share the good practices and learnings from the CNI project. SIF is involved in three key ways: 

1) To help identify climate actors on the remaining 87 islands through the development of a Carbon Neutral Islands Network; 

2) To collate good practices towards decarbonisation from other islands and share them through the islands network; 

3) To support the establishment of the CNI External Advisory Group.
