SEED Mauritius Dialogue Forum 2017

08 Aug 2017 - 08 Aug 2017

Labourdonnais Waterfront Hotel, Port Louis, Mauritius


Eco-inclusive enterprises are vivid examples on how the private sector plays a significant role in implementing, the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. Innovative enterprise solutions provide suitable approaches to clean energy, climate-smart agriculture, waste management and recycling challenges. The involvement of the private sector will be instrumental for the transition to environmentally sustainable, climate change resilient and just economy in Mauritius.

Organised by SEED and NELIS (Next Leaders’ Initiative for Sustainability), the Mauritius Dialogue Forum will bring together key stakeholders from businesses, politics and civil society to jointly explore approaches and partnerships essential to the promotion and replication of business models in order to successfully contribute to green growth and sustainable development in Mauritius.
