Mauritius IGF


Mauritius IGF has held its IGF forum in 2017, 18, 19. We have acknowledged during the recommendations, how it is difficult to involve people with disabilities, marginalised population and difficult to reach rural population. This year, Mauritius IGF has embarked on a research study to look into the barriers to participation in IGF. The recommendations, which will be out in April, will be used to finalise and involve participants from Mauritius IGF 2020 and the Africa-Indian Ocean Island States. Participants will be shared the study's recommendations and the ways Mauritius IGF is looking to take this challenging issue.
