Located off the southeast coast of Africa, neighbouring the French island of La Reunion, Mauritius is an island state of 1.3 million inhabitants. The country’s economy has made great strides since independence in 1968, and Mauritius is now an upper middle-income economy. Key challenges include tackling inequality, which remains at moderate levels but is increasing, and adapting to the impacts of climate change (World Bank, 2020).
