By encouraging the outermost regions to capitalise on their unique assets, the strategy seeks to help them create new opportunities for their inhabitants, boost innovation in sectors like agriculture, fisheries or tourism, while deepening the cooperation with neighbour countries. One year on, the main developments in Guadeloupe are:

  • Better risk management and adaptation to climate change through the CARIBCOAST cooperation project to establish a Caribbean coastal monitoring network;
  • Support for connectivity through the implementation of the PAIRE-CARISBKY project based on cooperation between airlines to improve services in the Caribbean;
  • Support for researchers through the Horizon 2020 «FORWARD» project aimed at strengthening their presence in European and international innovation networks and their ability to participate in research projects;
  • A stronger blue economy through maritime planning in the Caribbean basin, in partnership with Martinique, as well as vocational training in maritime occupations;
  • Energy transition promoted by projects such as «Electric mobility in the South Islands» to achieve 100% electric mobility or «The extension of the Bouillante geothermal power plant» aimed at developing renewable energy production.
