The Observatory Cities and Ports of the Indian Ocean (OVPOI) covers a geographical area of 10.6 million km² containing 185 million inhabitants at the cross roads between Africa and Asia. Through its network, OVPOI wishes to contribute to the formalisation of a regional identity. The publication One ocean, many cities and ports, co-signed by Wilfird Bertile, Marie-Annick Lamy-Giner and Philippe Le Gal is included in this approach. A voyage in pictures enables the port communities of Durban (South Africa), Le Port (Reunion Island), Mamoudzou (Mayotte), Maputo (Mozambique), Monbasa (Kenya), Mutsamudu (Comores), Toamasina (Madagascar), Port Louis (Mauritius), Victoria (Seychelles), as well as those of the other members of the network to be discovered. The principal statistics on the cities and the ports complete the document.

The book is available from the Observatory:
