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 watersheds by supporting cooperation projects with neighboring states. Measure No. 14 from the agreed conclusions also requires the AFD to outline a strategy for each ocean basin and reorganize its network.
In 2018 the AFD group conducted a fundamental reform of its strategic documents by approving a new 2018-2022 Strategic Orientation Plan (POS) categorizing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into six major transitions and five commitments. As part of this, the Three Oceans Department, which brings together 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 Pacific Regional Office (PRD) has been based in Noumea since September 2018. The group’s regional strategy defines common challenges facing all countries and territories in
the basin. It guides the strategies, the documents most adapted to the local context, for New Caledonia, French Polynesia, and Wallis and Futuna. Through its network, the PRD 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.
