WFEO is committed to capacity building efforts in engineering in the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) through its national members from Fiji, Mauritius and in the Caribbean, among others.

These members are among those affected by climate change and the impact of weather related natural disasters. Key issues that have been discussed at the events held in Fiji, Mauritius and in the West Indies have related to the need for resilient infrastructure for sustainable development and to withstand natural disasters which are increasing as a result of climate change.
