Welcome to WikiProject French Overseas Departments (full name French Overseas Departments and Territories, shortened to 'Departments' for consistency). The aim of this project is to bring together editors working on articles related to the current French Overseas Departments with an aim of improving and expanding all aspects of the colonies. This project was founded on 10 July 2015. It has two sister projects, WikiProject British Overseas Territories and WikiProject United States Territories.

Please note that this WikiProject should only cover all of the present overseas departments: former colonies do not count.
