Enabling poor rural people to overcome poverty in Mauritius
IFAD and the Government of Mauritius are moving towards a new form of partnership that differs from the standard model for low-income countries, which was followed in Mauritius until 2005.
IFAD recognizes that the country now has sufficient national resources to address rural poverty, so the focus of interventions has shifted from financing projects towards developing a collaborative approach with the government to reduce the incidence of poverty.
This approach includes policy dialogue, knowledge management and sharing, and partnership-building.
