The archipelago in the western Indian Ocean achieved the status as it was among the first 15 countries to ratify the ISA Agreement at the Conference of the Parties (COP21) in Paris in 2015.
Without directly mentioning Trump, Macron praised the "solar mamas", a group of women trained as solar engineers, saying that the women had continued their mission to promote solar energy even after "some countries decided just to leave the floor and leave the Paris Agreement". Additionally, over the last 7 years, 50% of the EIB's solar investment was located in developing and emerging economies, financing projects in Africa in Morocco, South Africa, and Burkina Faso; across Latin America in Nicaragua and Peru; in Asia in India and Vietnam; and Turkey and Israel. Of these, 61 have signed the framework agreement and 32 have also submitted their instruments of ratification.
The Joint Declaration affirms the commitment of the IRENA and ISA to collaborate on advancing solar deployment and projects through helping countries develop policies and regulations around solar energy and through the implementation of IRENA initiatives such as the Clean Energy Corridors and the SIDS Lighthouses.
