Impact of COVID-19
Mauritius Research Platform
This platform is hosted with the objective of sharing research, data, and other resources on the impact of COVID-19 on Small Island Development States, with a special focus on the Indian Ocean sub-region. The platform is also used to organise a series of online events, in the form of fortnightly scientific symposiums, to
showcase the approaches and results of research conducted on the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis on Mauritius, and
facilitate the production of further analytical work.
The online platform, managed by International Economics Consulting, aims to encourage collaboration across researchers from government, academia, civil society, and international development partners. The World Bank, together with the United Nations have joined forces in establishing this first platform of its kind.
