UNDP Mauritius Country Programme Document 2024-2028

May 22, 2024

The UNDP programme in Mauritius is be clustered around two complementary programme areas, using cross-cutting innovation, technology and digitalization to improve processes, increase efficiency and promote sustainability. The areas are: (a) socioeconomic transformation; and (b) environmental sustainability and resilience. The theory of change is underpinned by the understanding that if structural constraints that hinder investment in the public and private sectors are addressed, and underemployed women, at-risk youth and vulnerable communities, particularly in coastal regions and those affected by gender-based violence, are deliberately included in economic and alternative livelihood initiatives, and if environmental commitments for the sustainable management of natural resources, adaptation to and mitigation of climate change and disaster risk reduction are fulfilled through increased climate financing and effective implementation; then Mauritius will consolidate its path towards an inclusive and green economy aligned with the national vision.

The country programme will support innovation and experimentation for integrated solutions and inclusive digital transformation, with the support of the UNDP Global Centre for Technology, Innovation and Sustainable Development in Singapore, and exploration of innovative private financing sources through the UNDP Sustainable Finance Hub and Global Policy Network. At country level, the multi-country office aims to strengthen upstream policy advisory capacities and streamline operational capacities for improved efficiency and agility in programming. The programme will emphasize a human rights- based approach through the design, planning and implementation of development programmes at community level, with specific focus on underemployed fisherfolk in coastal communities; survivors of gender-based violence; and communities vulnerable to environmental shocks and degradation.
