UNDP Mauritius Annual Report 2021

June 20, 2022

Like the rest of the world, Mauritius has continued to face persistent uncertainties rebuilding the economy since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Although the country had successfully stamped out the widespread community infection from COVID-19 in 2020, the resurgence of local cases resulted in the second national lockdown from 10 March 2021.

The negative impacts of the pandemic combined with the 2020 oil spill have continued to compound other vulnerabilities faced by the country. In May, Mauritius had 293 reported cases of domestic violence in just 18 days, mostly perpetuated against women - a similar trend registered in 2020.

This annual report captures the results of the strategic actions and programmatic interventions rolled out by the UNDP Mauritius and Seychelles Country Office to assist the Government and population of the Republic of Mauritius in facing development challenges in 2021.
