i) Economic recovery and response, including around climate, health and business;

ii) Support to vulnerable groups within Mauritius and Rodrigues;

iii) Impact on green and sustainable policies and/or activities.

We invite proposals from civil society, commercial organisations, academic institutions and government entities, operating in either Mauritius or Rodrigues.
