The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is one of the world’s largest multilateral development agencies partnering with national stakeholders from the government, private sector, academia and civil society, to achieve 2030 national visions and to build a world where no one is leaving behind. To achieve this aim, UNDP provides and supports capacity building efforts, promotes policy dialogue and advocacy, and shares best practices and knowledge.
UNDP Country Office in Mauritius and Seychelles partners with both countries in the area of inclusive development, environment protection, climate change adaptation and disaster risk management. Capacity building for the public sector and gender mainstreaming will remain key areas of intervention.
The Climate Change Adaptation programme is in its last year of implementation. The programme embarked on major coastal protection works at 13 different sites toincrease climate resilience of communities and livelihoods in the coastal areas of Mauritius.The programme comprises of the construction of a refuge centre, mangrove plantations and costal adaptation works, as well as establishing an early warning system for storm surges. It also comprises training and capacity building, as well as policy mainstreaming, knowledge dissemination and management components.
