Travel Responsibly in Mauritius
Mauritius is a beautiful tropical island renowned for its coastal bounties with pristine beaches and extensive coral reefs set against the backdrop of sculptured volcanic mountain scenery. Situated on the Tropic of Capricorn, Mauritius is known as the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’.

Mauritius is part of the United Nations Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Initiative addressing structural and external challenges to UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In moving towards achieving its SDGs Mauritius has continued on its strategy to build comprehensive international and regional Partnerships. The Partnership for Action on Green Economy is coordinated by the Ministry of Finance to create a Green Bonds Market. The objective is to stimulate inward investment opportunities from the public and private sectors that promote climate and environmental benefits. Collaboration has been essential in protecting marine and terrestrial ecosystems from climate change and man made ecological disasters.
