Global Fuel Economy Initiative in Mauritius
The Global Fuel Economy Initiative (GFEI) was launched on 4 March 2009 in Geneva, by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and its partners, namely the International Energy Agency (IEA), the International Transport Forum (ITF) and the “Federation International des Automobiles” (FIA) Foundation. The objective of this initiative is to assist countries to develop policies that encourage fuel economy improvement and efficiency for vehicles and to review existing policies on fuel economy.
The Global Fuel Economy Initiative in Mauritius aims at improving fuel economy for vehicles and decreasing carbon dioxide emissions.
The implementation of this project in Mauritius started in March 2013 and is scheduled for completion in December 2014. This project is funded by the United Nations Environment Programme under the Global Environment Facility (GEF) to the tune of USD 70,000. In fact, Mauritius forms part of the three pilot countries from the Africa region along with Morocco and Kenya to undertake the project.
