PROTEGE (“Pacific Territories Regional Project for Sustainable Ecosystem Management” or “protect” in French) is an initiative designed to promote sustainable and climate-change-resilient economic development in the European Pacific overseas countries and territories (OCT) by emphasising biodiversity and renewable resources.
PROTEGE is a regional cooperation project that supports the public policies of the four Pacific OCTs, i.e. New Caledonia, French Polynesia, Wallis & Futuna and Pitcairn.
PROTEGE will receive EUR 36 million from the European Development Fund’s (EDF) regional budget along with cofunding of some EUR 128,000 from the three French territories.
Implemented by the Pacific Community (SPC - Environmental Sustainability and Climate Change Programme) and the Pacific Regional Environment Program (SPREP) for a period of four years (2018-2022), PROTEGE intervenes in support of the public policies of the countries and territories concerned.
