La Reunion 2008

At this meeting, entitled “The European Union and its Overseas Entities: Strategies to counter Climate Change and Biodiversity Loss”, EU institutions and member states, Outermost Regions (ORs), Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs) and organizations were urged to:

  • Strengthen and support involvement of overseas entities in regional cooperation efforts with SIDS and ACP countries, more specifically in initiatives such as GLISPA; and
  • Unite in the face of climate change and biodiversity loss and leverage ORs/OCTs experience in international negotiations. GLISPA was officially recognised as one of the most effective mechanisms to advance regional and global cooperation.
