The French National Research Institute for Sustainable Development is a public research institution defending an original model of equitable scientific partnership with the countries of the South. It is committed to interdisciplinarity and citizen science, with the view to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.

The IRD office in La Réunion opened in 1987 to implement the first marine environment monitoring program linked to the growth of tuna fishing in the Indian Ocean. The teams have now grown to organize and implement various research programmes connected with the territory’s issues.
