Maurice Île Durable: Government Approved Action Plan

9 years ago - June 17, 2013
The Maurice Ile Durable Policy, Strategy and Action Plan was approved by the government yesterday after several months of waiting.

This report was completed by a group of consultants Mott Macdonald (UK) Ltd in association with Lux Consult (Mauritius) Ltd. According to Le Mauricien information, the budget for 2014 was adopted, but the amount has not been revealed. 

The purpose of the Maurice Île Durable (MID) action plan is to develop a MID program and a strategy for the next decade; to develop a program with realistic actions and projects to review the legal and institutional institutions to develop indicators and make recommendations for the implementation of the plan. "We welcome the government's decision with great relief," said the Mauritian Mahomed Osman, Executive Chairman of the Commission MID. The plan, he explained, has been considerable work on the part of all stakeholders.

Osman Mahomed attributed the delay in the publication of the plan is that the selection of the consultant took the time, Committee wanting to follow procedures tenders strictly as required by the French Development Agency. In addition, consultants Mott MacDonald acknowledged underestimating the amount of work to be done. Finally, the Ministry of Finance, in the presence of the plan since April, put a lot of time before giving its approval, taking into account the budgetary allocations involved.

For his part, Khalil Elahee, president of Energy Efficiency Office Management (EEMO), welcomed, too, the government's decision after a long wait. "Hopefully that energy efficiency is at the heart of any problem and that beyond the budget for the implementation of the plan execution, the element will embed sustainability in all projects it is energy, infrastructure Road, New City, computer or recreational park, "he said.

"Everything is based on a new model of development, production and consumption. It is a matter of changing mindset in terms of both policy makers, consumers, road users, traders, etc., "says the chairman of eemo.

Khalil Elahee also emphasizes training that will allow the transfer of technology and expertise. "Do not forget the University of Mauritius who need a helping hand to advance research. During the implementation of the MID Action Plan, the main thing is not to try at all costs to concrete results. We can not measure education, health, social activities for the poor, in terms of return on investment. We need to find methods that adapt to the size of the MID, "stated Khalil Elahee.

Explaining the steps that led to the development of the action plan, Osman Mahomed has advanced a model of participatory democracy was adopted. A model where the recommendations are passed through a bottom-up system. 26 workshops were established, based on the model of the Grenelle environment. 600 recommendations were made and formed the basis of the national policy and strategy MID plan were short about 130 shares.

process monitoring has been recognized internationally in several instances, observed Osman Mahomed who had the opportunity to speak at Bercy in 2012, Rio +20 and more recently in Yokohama, Japan at the conference TICAD V at a round table organized by UNESCO. "I had the opportunity to present the process with a focus on education for sustainable development as a model for African countries," he says.

authorities however did not wait for the action plan to launch more than 200 projects.

Executive Chairman of the Commission MID also raised its presence in the National Energy Commission who works in the spirit of the MID and whose activities are parallel to the MID Board.

"I was appointed to chair a subcommittee to receive all those who want to be heard. This is a separate committee established by the National Energy Commission (NEC) with the consent of the firm. 44 people have been heard and the report is about to be finalized, "he said.
