Graduating Country

Mauritius has transformed into an upper middle-income diversified economy, benefitting from dynamic industrial and financial sectors and high levels of human development. Yet, coastal ecosystems are under threat and income inequality, unemployment and global competitiveness remain a concern. With an economy highly dependent on tourism and imports, in 2020, Mauritius was hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and associated lockdown. As a small island developing state, Mauritius is also on the front line of climate change. In September 2022, Mauritius celebrated eight years of partnership in the country after joining PAGE in 2014. It is now a Graduating Country.

PAGE has supported the achievement of the country’s Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and several SDGs, including SDGs 1 (No Poverty), 4 (Quality Education), 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure), 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production), 13 (Climate Action) and 17 (Partnerships for the Goals).  Mauritius has also directly recognised PAGE as contributing to their achievements in the Voluntary National Review (VNR) of its SDGs during the High-Level Political Forum (HLPF).
