The core goal of MOVE-ON is to produce good practices guidance and policy recommendations tailored for overseas regions specificities and needs, pooling resources, involving and empowering local actors. It complements and expands the activities of the MOVE project, strengthening links and capitalizing the on-going work to further test and implement the MAES methodology in different regions underpinned by four anchor projects in French Guiana, Macaronesia, Reunion Island and South Atlantic Region.
