The biodiversity agenda is a strategic agenda for the entire region. One of Indianoceania’s assets is its biodiversity capital. It’s not an artificial capital, but a natural, vital and promising one. We need to make the most of it to ensure a lasting return for the region and its people.
Pr. Vêlayoudom Marimoutou, IOC Secretary General
