OIKO LOGICA has been awarded a new Climate Change Project. The GCCA will conduct the formulation of a support program to Climate Change Adaptation in Mauritius. Strategic objectives of the climate change adaptation policy framework are to:

  • Foster the development of strategies, plans and processes to: (i) Avoid, minimize or adapt to the negative impacts of climate change on key sectors and assets of Mauritius, namely agriculture, water, fisheries and ecosystems; (ii) Avoid or reduce damage to human settlements and infrastructure, and also possible loss of lives caused by climate change. (iii) To build capacity to understand, analyse and pre-empt in a timely manner in the wake of future climate change impacts within the Republic of Mauritius.
  • Integrate and mainstream climate change adaptation into core development policies, strategies and plans of the Republic of Mauritius.

We use Earth Science technology to improve the quality of life in our world, especially the economic livelihood opportunities of the world's most vulnerable populations and the sustainable use of the natural resources of our planet. Our work is divided in six main program areas- Climate Adaptation, Climate Mitigation, Ecosystems, Natural Resources, Poverty & Livelihoods and Climate Services.
