Programme pour les régions ultrapériphériques et les pays et territoires d’outre-mer de l’Union européenne

L’Union européenne (UE) comprend 34 territoires d’outre-mer : 8 régions ultrapériphériques, et 26 pays et territoires d’outre-mer. Ils sont reliés à 6 Etats Membres : le Danemark, l’Espagne, la France, les Pays-Bas, le Portugal et le Royaume-Uni. Présents dans tous les océans, des pôles aux tropiques, ils abritent une diversité unique d’espèces et d’écosystèmes d’intérêt mondial, fortement exposés aux pressions anthropiques et, de plus en plus, aux impacts du changement climatique.

Le programme de l’UICN pour les régions ultrapériphériques et les pays et territoires d’outre-mer de l’UE contribue à la protection de cette biodiversité et à son intégration dans les stratégies d’adaptation au changement climatique. Pour en savoir plus sur le programme pour l’Europe d’outre-mer de l’UICN, cliquez-ici.
