Romy Voos Andrianarisoa, Managing Director of TF261, is co-organizer of these conferences. She explains: “The 1st Assises du Développement Durable de l’Océan Indien (ADD-OI) have been designed by and for the private sector and are organized around three themes: the blue economy, the common strategy of carbon offsetting, global warming.
It is planned to develop 30 projects, 10 projects per theme.
More precisely: large-scale business projects, ready to be deployed, whose profitability and pragmatism have been pre-studied upstream of the ADD-OI and by multidisciplinary teams of experts.

Showing the leadership of Madagascar and the Indian Ocean

Projects geared towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Green Deal, with project monitoring scheduled over the next 7 years to align the operational objectives of these projects with the global commitment of “30 by 2030
Structuring, transformative and innovative projects focused on the sustainable economic development of the islands and the sub-region, and positioning the Indian Ocean on a global scale as a key player in the fight against global warming.
All these projects are achievable through the commitment of the private sector.
Note that these conferences will be “green” in the image of regional and global forums with a “zero paper” ambition: interactivity via the platform for the presentation of projects and exchanges between participants will be pushed to its most digital level possible. The idea is to show the leadership of Madagascar and the Indian Ocean region in general in the digital field by combining efficiency in regional exchanges and collaboration and technological innovation. Finally, all the participants of the Conference who will fly to Madagascar will commit to planting “1 baobab tree = 500 km of flight”.
