The GPMG has been awarded LIFE funding in 2019 to carry out the LIFE ADAPT'ISLAND project, one of whose main objectives is to develop nature-based solutions to mitigate the effects induced by climate change on the island territory that is Guadeloupe. The nature-based solutions envisaged aim to protect, sustainably manage and promote the healthy development of emblematic Caribbean coastal ecosystems such as coral reefs. The scientific committee allows to validate the protocols of the operations and to benefit from the advice of international experts on the treated subjects. Within the framework of the project, these experts will come to Guadeloupe to hold a conference, as well as field visits. A second objective of the visit will be to organize an international symposium on adaptation to climate change in Europe's outermost regions.
In order to accelerate the process of dissemination of the involvement of the population in the adaptation to climate change, this symposium will aim to gather 250 transnational actors. This device will also be used for the action of replication of good practices in territories outside the European Union. The symposium will be entirely dedicated to the LIFE ADAPT'ISLAND project and its main results.
