Abstract

This Working Paper constitutes the epilogue of the book manuscript, "Understanding Population-Development-Environment Interactions: A Case Study on Mauritius". It is an attempt to summarize the findings from the Mauritius case study and put them into the context of the global population-environment debate. The Mauritius case study was carried out by IIASA in scientific collaboration with the University of Mauritius and funded by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

The paper presents findings from the multidisciplinary historical description of population, economy and environment in Mauritius and from the interdisciplinary computer model simulating future population-development-environment interactions.

The material is structured around five broad questions that figure prominently in the population-environment debate and to which the Mauritius case study can make a contribution.
