Alors qu’elles contribuent de manière négligeable aux émissions de gaz à effet de serre, elles risquent de subir des dégâts énormes et potentiellement irréversibles au niveau de l’environnement, de l’économie et de la société.
L’adaptation au changement climatique est donc pour elles une priorité absolue, nécessitant la mise en place d’actions appropriées et un soutien important de la part de la communauté internationale.

Les îles de la COI (Union des Comores, Madagascar, Maurice, France/Réunion, Seychelles) sont en première ligne face au changement climatique. Alors qu’elles contribuent de manière négligeable aux émissions de gaz à effet de serre, elles risquent de subir des dégâts énormes et potentiellement irréversibles au niveau de l’environnement, de l’économie et de la société.
L’adaptation au changement climatique est donc pour elles une priorité absolue, nécessitant la mise en place d’actions appropriées et un soutien important de la part de la communauté internationale.
Consciente de cette réalité, la Commission de l’Océan Indien a lancé en 2008 un projet régional d’adaptation au changement climatique, intitulé Acclimate. Premier projet de ce genre dans le sud-ouest de l’océan Indien, Acclimate est cofinancé par le Fonds Français pour l’Environnement Mondial (FFEM), le Ministère français des Affaires étrangères et européennes (MAEE / Agence Française de Développement - AFD) et la Région Réunion.
