The Indian Ocean Commission (COI), known as the Commission de l'Océan Indien in French, is an intergovernmental organization that joins Comoros, Madagascar, Mauritius, France (for Réunion), and the Seychelles together to encourage cooperation. It was started in January 1984 under the General Victoria Agreement. The official language of communication is French.
IOC's mission is to strengthen regional cooperation while defending the common interests of these countries. In 2008 the IOC launched the Acclimate project, designed to strengthen climate-resilience and build capacity of IOC's State members, focusing on adaptation and the promotion of a regional climate governance.
