7. Tourism in Mauritius Whats next

Tourism in Mauritius – What’s next?

Clearly a turning page for the tourism and hospitality sector. As a result of collective brainstorming facilitated by our external experts, we have produced a policy recommendation report for a more sustainable and inclusive tourism, entitled “Low Carbon and Resilient Mauritius”, focusing on three policy factsheets on the following themes:

  1. Transitioning towards electric in-lagoon boats
  2. Sustainable Golf Management
  3. Nature-based solutions in Mauritius

On 9th May 2022, SIM held a multisectoral policy dialogue with tourism specialists, giving them the opportunity to share their views, discuss the cross-sectoral implication on the proposed sustainable actions and join forces in generating ideas and innovations to the report.

The conclusions and recommendations adopted at the meeting are intended to assist government, employers, and workers to harness the fullest potential of the tourism sector to support a sustainable and resilient recovery and a just transition to a more inclusive, sustainable, and resilient future of work in tourism.

The ultimate objective of this session was to see how together as one team and one nation, we can forge and achieve our goal of making Mauritius a green and sustainable destination. The recommendations would thereof be submitted to the related Authorities.
