AMCDD, 4C Maroc Publish White Paper on Systemic Integration of Climate Change into Public Policies in Morocco
Rabat – The Moroccan Alliance for Climate and Sustainable Development (AMCDD) and the Climate Change Competence Center of Morocco (4C Maroc) have recently published a White Paper on the systemic integration of climate change in Morocco’s public policies.
This white paper is intended to be an advocacy document for the integration of climate change into Morocco’s public development policies, which environmental civil society will make available to political decision-makers at the central and territorial levels.
It also presents itself as a plea of environmental civil society for the alignment of public policies and Morocco’s post-COVID recovery plan with “the challenges of the Paris Agreement and the requirements of sustainability and resilience” in the light of the launch of the implementation of the orientations of the New Development Model (NMD) during the political term 2021-2026.
This contribution aims to put the issues of the fight against climate change, the loss of biodiversity, and the preservation of natural capital, and the achievement of the sustainable development objectives of the 2030 Agenda at the heart of public policies and the future government program and to place sustainability, resilience and inclusion at the heart of the COVID-19 post-crisis economic and social recovery plan.
It is also about alerting the actors concerned to the need to rethink the process of design, convergence and implementation of public policies by placing the ecological, digital and energy transition at the heart of national and territorial policies and programs, in addition to consolidating Morocco’s international climate leadership by accelerating the implementation of global agendas by the various actors: Government, parliament, regional and communal councils, and the private sector.
The White Paper was produced through several stages, in particular the analysis of the achievements and progress of Morocco’s climate policies over the past ten years, the analysis of Morocco’s new climate commitments at the international level and the degree of integration of climate risk into public policies.
