The declaration agreed for both countries to work hand-in-hand and formulate a country package on nature, forest and climate.
A media statement about the visit said the scientists included Laurent Durieux and Marc Despinoy from the French research institute for sustainable development’s Geospatial4PICTS programme based in New Caledonia and Insight Solutions Geospatiales director Jean Massenet and project manager Pearl Winchester.
