A shared territory

The BIO-PLATEAUX project is co-financed by the European Union through the Interreg Amazon Cooperation Program. It aims at developing the sharing of data, information and experiences on water and biodiversity in aquatic environments between French Guiana, Brazil and Suriname, particularly in the two transboundary basins of the Oiapoque and Maroni rivers.

As part of BIO-PLATEAUX, pilot “water classes” (educational activities to discover water element) were conducted with the help of the association “Canopée des Sciences” in French Guiana, in Saint Georges de l'Oyapock and Cayenne in May and June 2021. Due to the sanitary conditions in Suriname and the State of Amapa in Brazil, the realization of awareness activities (Albina and Oiapoque) has been postponed to a later date.
