AOSIS (2017) Alliance of Small Island States: 25 years of leadership at the United Nations. Indeed, this is a historic agreement, even if we must remember that history will not judge us on what we have done today, but on what we are doing from that day forward. This is how the Paris Agreement is measured by future generations (AOSIS 2015b). You can find the list of members in UNFCCC (2015a) Paris Agreement. Mortimer, C. (2015). That is why these Pacific islands need the Paris agreement on climate change to succeed.

The Independent. The Independent. Online. Available at: UNFCCC (2017a) Paris Agreement – ratification status. November 28th. Access 28 September 2017 Although the effects of climate change are already being felt around the world, some countries are more vulnerable to the effects of climate change than others. Among the most vulnerable are the small, deep island states that will be swallowed up by the sea in a few decades, when climate change will progress at its current rate (UNFCCC 2014). Given the disproportionate effects and small size of these island states, the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS) serves as a single and unique voice to strengthen the voice of small island developing states (SIDS) within the United Nations (AOSIS 2018). AOSIS encourages developing countries to work towards the international fight against climate change and prioritize sustainable development (AOSIS 2015a, 3). This paper aims to analyze how AOSIS has been able to significantly influence international climate agreements and discusses ways to build on the significant progress made by aOSIS nations by further strengthening the voices of nations at risk in international climate talks.
