About the Association pour le Développement Durable (ADD)

Block Image

The idea to form an NGO originated back in the early 2000’s. Many colleagues from the Meteorological Services and other organisations, who were on the verge of retiring or already retired from their active professional career, started exchanging views on how they could use their national, regional and international knowledge and experience to contribute to the sustainable development of the Republic of Mauritius and improve the wellbeing of the people. The Association pour le Développement Durable (ADD) was thus formed in 2007 was registered with the Registry of Associations since 21 February 2007 (No. 9744). It is also enrolled on the list of approved NGOs of the National Social Inclusion Foundation (NSIF/2021/004).

It now consists of a mix of former high officials from International and National Organisations and Institutions and young professionals from the University of Mauritius, Mauritius Institute of Education and several other national institutions as well as from the private sector and Small and Medium Enterprises.
