Port Louis is the capital city of Mauritius and the country's economic, cultural, political centre and most populous city, with a population of some 150,000.
The Mauritian Minister of Social Security, Reform Institutions, and Environment and Sustainable Development, Mr Etienne Sinatambou, has called for “an economic model where there is a transition from the linear model of producing, using and dumping to the circular model where we produce, use and reuse”.
Mauritius is making a transition to an Inclusive Green Economy and is promoting a shift to sustainable production and consumption patterns. Currently, the amount of waste generated is 450 000 tons and it is expected to double in the years to come.
With regard to renewable energy, the micro-climate generated by the unique topology of Mauritius, its attractive investment climate and existing research institutions working on renewable energy projects, are the key assets of Mauritius as a test base for R&D projects that can be replicated on a regional scale. Opportunities for collaboration exist for the use of the waters of Mauritius as a test base for marine renewable energy projects.
