Abstract

The purpose of my presentation is to give you an overview of the Virtual University for Small States of the Commonwealth or VUSSC and the activities it is undertaking to address the issue of capacity building to overcome some of the challenges that the small states of the Commonwealth are facing.//At the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting which was held in Colombo, Sri Lanka in November 2013, the Heads of Government debated on four possible areas, each underpinned by ongoing Commonwealth work, where leaders could make a contribution that can potentially shapes and transform the intergovernmental debates.//These are resilience, youth employment, climate change and finance for development.
