The World Bank and United Nations (UN), together with other partners wishing to join, are proposing to launch an on-line platform for sharing research, data, and other resources on the impact of COVID-19 on Mauritius, Small Islands Development States and the sub-region, and organise a series of online events, in the form of fortnightly scientific symposiums, to

  1. showcase the approaches and results of research conducted on the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis on Mauritius, and
  2. facilitate the production of further analytical work.

The platform aims to encourage collaboration across researchers from government, academia, civil society, and international development partners.


  • Identify the key research questions surrounding COVID-19 recovery that policy makers and the private sector need answers for;
  • Present and discuss existing methodological frameworks, data sources, existing studies and results on COVID-19 recovery;
  • Map the resources and existing research interests;
  • Identify potential areas for collaboration between academics, international organisations, NGOs and public-private sectors;


The Regional Multidisciplinary Centre of Excellence (RMCE) is dedicated to building capacity of African nations towards effective economic integration for an inclusive and continent-wide socio-economic development.

The RMCE is collaborating with the World Bank in addressing the pandemic, starting in these countries: Comoros, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Reunion, Seychelles and Zambia.

The objective is to promote regional cooperation and a regional approach to building solutions for both the private and public sector in their response to COVID-19.

The aim of this initiative is to collect data from suppliers to build a database of COVID-19 supplies. This will enable B2B connection between supply and demand and eventually, feed into wider procurement portals from international organisations.
