Climate Adaptation

The European Union has provided three unused gifts to the College of Mauritius, the Water System Specialist, and the Mauritius Chamber of Farming for climate adaptation activities.

Climate Action

The European Union’s Minister to Mauritius, Marjaana Sall, has expressed commitment to implementing the Paris Agreement and supporting its counterparts in achieving it. Additionally, she highlighted the EU’s commitment to expanding the flexibility of small farmers to climate impacts.

Agricultural Impacts

Mauritius, an island state, is vulnerable to climate change due to its limited power against it. Furthermore, this affects the rural sector, as cultivation activities are exposed to climatic conditions. To ensure food security, the government needs to adopt climate-savvy rural skills and increase the resilience of farmers to climate change impacts.


The College of Mauritius, Water system Specialist, and Mauritius Chamber of Farming received over 50 million Rupees for climate-smart farming initiatives. This includes transforming a horse into a climate-smart town.

Aid for Rodrigues

Climate-Friendly farming

Climate Change Partnership

The EU and Mauritius are planning a specialized climate change discourse on September 24, during EU Climate Decision Week. Moreover, this aims to discuss how to collaborate and strengthen the implementation of the Paris Agreement, clarifying the way for ecclesiastical discourse on climate change.

Sustainable Development
