By encouraging the outermost regions to capitalise on their unique assets, the strategy seeks to support these regions in creating new opportunities, boosting innovation and jobs in sectors such as agriculture, fisheries, climate change and circular economy, and deepening cooperation with neighbour countries.

Two years on, the main developments in Martinique are:

  • Support to the blue economy, through training programmes on fisheries and other blue sectors in the dedicated vocational training centre POLE MER and through the creation of an aquaculture institute;
  • A more dynamic circular economy, through 14 projects, including studies on the reuse of medical utilities and furniture and mobile facilities providing repair services; and through a plan for the prevention and management of waste products and campaigns against food waste;
  • Energy transition with the installation of photovoltaic panels and fuel stations with 100% solar energy for electrical cars;
  • Enhanced cooperation with the countries of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States, particularly in the field of risk prevention and management, to benefit from shared expertise in dealing with extreme weather events.
