St Martin to host Interreg Caraibes project selection committee meeting
Published on April 1, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

MARIGOT, St Martin -- The ninth selection and monitoring committees of the Interreg Caraïbes programme will take place on April 2 and 3, 2014, in Saint Martin under the chairmanship of the Regional Council of Guadeloupe in its capacity as management authority.

On this occasion, the representatives of the regional councils of Guadeloupe, Martinique, French Guiana, the Overseas Collectivity of Saint Martin in partnership with the representatives of regional cooperation organisations in the Caribbean zone (CARICOM-CARIFORUM, ACS and OECS) will select the projects to be financed in the framework of the European Interreg Caraïbes programme.

Emphasis will be placed on the strengthening of two European funding arrangements: European Development Fund (EDF) a financial tool dedicated to Caribbean countries and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), which can be accessed by the French Overseas Departments of the Americas as European regions.

This will also be an opportunity for project leads to share their lessons learned through the initiatives financed by Interreg.

Finally, in anticipation of the closure of the 2007/2013 programme, the major task of the selection committee will be to re-programme the remaining funds.

Interreg Caraïbes is a European cooperation programme which aims to strengthen economic and social exchanges between the French Overseas Departments of the Americas and the countries of the Caribbean.

As such, the latter covers an area of over 4.3 million km2 with close to 42 territories. The budget allocated to the implementation of concrete projects is in the order of 63 million euros of which 48 million euros constitute European co-financing.
