AVCOI brings together nearly forty towns, districts and communes in the Comoros, La Réunion, Madagascar, Mayotte, Mauritius and the Seychelles, who, through this French association, engage in dialogue, share their experiences, strengthen their skills and work together on concrete projects to serve their populations. Circular economy and waste management, local taxation, sustainable tourism, managing responses to climate risks... these are just some of the issues currently being addressed.
Project owner or project manager for partners keen to have a real, direct, local impact on the beneficiary populations, and a strong involvement of committed local authorities.

What we are looking for

Product, service or intervention sought

The association's mission is to promote the implementation of its members' projects. These projects can be collective, but can also deal with more individual problems: implementation of a sewage sludge solution in a town of 350,000 inhabitants, studies for the future installation of a health center, studies for protection measures in the face of rising sea levels, etc.

Depending on skills and resources, the services/products/interventino can be diverse.

In AVCOI, partners seeking to operate in the Indian Ocean will find a responsive and attentive partner who can help them achieve operational results in areas committed to environmentally-friendly development and economic growth.

Skills and expertise required

Our expectations/interest in creating a partnership

Carrying out concrete projects for the benefit of local populations may require more skills than those of an association of local authorities: technical skills to technically implement projects or works (NGOs, companies, local authorities involved in decentralized cooperation), financial resources to co-finance these operations (local authorities, donors), collaboration in setting up larger-scale projects or projects in other geographical regions (support actors, NGOs, etc.).

Partnerships give us the means and credibility to carry out concrete, successful and sustainable projects. AVCOI can provide, in all modesty, the confidence of its members for real impact and territorial cohesion, a network of communities that know each other and have the same goals (multiplication of impact on several cities or several islands in the Indian Ocean), project management or project management, file preparation (proven experience in European projects (Interreg, Feder, FP7...), FCR, Region...), links with territorial authorities, etc.

Contributions we are looking for from the future partner

  • Means/opportunities Financial
  • Additional skills/expertise
