Biotope Madagascar

Objectives and added value

Already established since 2003 on the island of Reunion, Biotope created an affiliate 100% Madagascan in Tananarive in January 2008 with the aim of creating a Madagascan ecological engineering sector. The challenge is to help guide the economic development of the country, in parallel with the preservation and the enhancement of its biodiversity which is unique but very fragile.

Biotope Madagascar is comprised of local experts, equipped with an excellent network (its clients include Ambatovy, Assist Development, Colas, PNUD and the National Office for the Environment, WWF, QMM, Practica Foundation and Sipromad).

For more information, download the presentation booklet on Biotope Madagascar or contact the offices in Tananarive directly.
