Helping Mauritius mainstream renewable energy and reduce its reliance on fossil fuels.
With imported fossil fuels supplying 84 percent of Mauritius' primary energy requirements, the country is vulnerable to outside energy shocks, like many other Small Island Developing States (SIDS). Also, greenhouse gas emissions are increasing at a rate of 3 percent per year, while the country's energy generation mix is dominated by imports of coal (39 percent) and fuel oil (38 percent).
This project is aimed at enabling the Government of Mauritius to meet its target of using renewables to supply 35 percent of the country's energy needs by 2025. This is part of a broad national strategy to reduce the country's dependence on fossil fuels aE“ to enhance energy security and climate change mitigation, and to improve the country's balance of payments.
The project will remove bottlenecks to investments in low-carbon development in two phases:

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF GREEN CLIMATE FUND
The Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) addresses complaints by people who believe they are negatively affected or may be affected by projects or programmes funded by the Green Climate Fund (GCF). The complainant can raise issues related to any of GCF’s policies and procedures, including those relating to social and environmental issues, indigenous peoples, gender, and information disclosure, among others. If you submit a complaint to the IRM, it may seek to address the issues raised by facilitating problem solving or conducting a compliance process. You can learn more about the Independent Redress Mechanism and how to file a complaint at https://irm.greenclimate.fund/.
