Work in close relationship with Mauritius partners, including the National Parks and Conservation Service and the Mauritian Wildlife Foundation, to set up a knowledge management system on the Mauritian flora that could inform decision-makers from the government, private sector and civil society. Introduce partners to the model of multistakeholder institutions set up in France for plant conservation called "Conservatoires Botaniques." The project will include a field component: the reintroduction in the wild of rare and endangered plants that have been safeguarded by the Conservatoire Botanique de Brest since the 1970s.

Strategic Direction: 3 Strengthen civil society capacity at local and regional levels through training, exchanges and regional cooperation.
