Belle Mare is a small village situated on the eastern coastal side of the island of Mauritius. Residents are mainly small planters highly vulnerable to a high incidence of pests and disease due to climatic conditions such as high temperature and humidity, and climate extremes, such as drought and high-intensity rainfall. Fifteen small planters were selected and are beneficiaries of a project for the transformation of Belle Mare into a Climate-Smart Agriculture village, supported by the EU-funded Global Climate Change Alliance Plus (GCCA+). Each of them received water tanks, sprayers for biopesticides and tillers. The final goal is to set a trend to promote sustainable livelihood, enhancing national food security in a productive, climate-resilient, environment-friendly way that produces lower levels of greenhouse gas emissions.

The European Commission President Ursula von Der Leyen has launched the 'Fit for 55' proposals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030. Areas covered include the EU ETS; aviation, maritime, cars and vans; renewable energy and energy efficiency; and the land sector. A Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism is proposed to avert carbon leakage. Find out more.
