To advance private sector engagement within the wider national development aspirations, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), developed the Seychelles SDG Investor Map in partnership with the Ministry of Investment, Entrepreneurship and Industry (MIEI). Following the UNDP’s global methodology, the Seychelles Map is a market intelligence tool that aligns development needs with investment opportunities for the private sector.

 

Combining development impact and business case analysis and sectoral and sub- regional research, the tool identifies both Investment Opportunity Areas (IOAs) and Emerging Investment Opportunity Areas (EIOAs) at the intersection of national development needs and policy priorities within sectors of critical relevance for Seychelles’ sustainable development progress.
