Press Release: Official Launch of the Seychelles SDG Investor Map, Thursday 13 July 2023
July 11, 2023
Following extensive research and consultations with the public and private sector, in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Government of Seychelles will launch the Seychelles SDG Investor Map on Thursday 13th July 2023 @ L’Escale Resort and Spa at 5:30PM.
This innovative market intelligence tool will help direct domestic and foreign private capital to investment opportunities at the intersection of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), national priorities and viable business models.
The Seychelles SDG Investor Map identifies nine specific Investment Opportunity Areas (IOAs) which bring together development impact, business case analysis and sectoral and sub-regional research across five key sectors:
1. Renewable resources and alternative energy
3. Foods and beverage
5. Technology and communications
The IOAs present the potential to attract private sector investment financing while delivering highimpact development outcomes. Supported by robust data, evidence, and insights, the investment opportunities are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals and the Government of Seychelles development agenda, providing private stakeholders with invaluable insights for investment decisions for positive development impact.
The tool also identifies four Emerging IOAs (EIOAs) whose full potential can be achieved through regulatory and market incentives for an enabling environment for the private sector. The EIOAs include waste management and circularity, local agricultural production, semi-industrial commercial fishing, and digital transformation.
