The Global Sustainable Energy Islands Initiative was founded in 2000 to support those most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change: Small Island Developing States. The consortium of international NGO's and multi-lateral institutions now works in 9 islands across the world on diverse projects.
GSEII sees opportunity in these islands threatened by rising sea levels and extreme weather conditions. GSEII's work to increase renewable energy and energy efficiency facilitates the transition away from fossil fuels and benefits the islands' economies and the environment. more
