At the Interministerial Committee for International Cooperation and Development (CICID) on February 8, 2018, the government made a commitment to strengthen the integration of overseas territories into their regional ocean basins by supporting cooperation projects with neighboring states.
Measure No. 14 from the agreed conclusions also requires the Agence Française de Développement (AFD) to outline a strategy for each ocean basin and reorganize its network.. In 2018, AFD Group conducted a fundamental reform of its strategic documents by approving the new AFD Group 2018-2022 Strategy, categorizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into six major transitions and five commitments.
As part of this, the Three Oceans Department, which brings together the overseas territories and neighboring foreign states in the Indian, Pacific, and Atlantic Oceans, adopted its new 2019-2022 Three Oceans Strategy. The three regional strategies for the Indian, Atlantic, and Pacific basins are part of this updated framework.
The Indian Ocean Regional Office (DROI) has been based in Saint-Denis since September 2018. The Group’s regional strategy defines common challenges facing all territories in the basin. It lays out the country strategies in Madagascar, Mauritius, Union of the Comoros, Mayotte, Reunion Island, and the French Southern and Antarctic Territories (TAAF), which are strategic documents adapted to local realities. Through its network of agencies, the DROI designs cooperation projects with the goal of sharing resources, limiting the spread of negative externalities from one territory to the next, and sharing expertise on subjects of common interest.
