This status will enable the organization to make submissions to United Nations bodies, the Global Environment Facility and the Green Climate Fund, its president Mohamed Mostafa Bendaoud told MAP.
This will also allow the NGO to build international partnerships in the area of environment and the fight against the effects of drought, especially that the NGO aims to improve living standards in oasis areas in southern Morocco, by diversifying income-generating activities based on the creation of forests with trees that can withstand drought, he added.
According to Bendaoud, this consultative status will also enable the association to advocate on the effects of climate change in the rural areas in Guelmim-Oued Noon and other regions of the Kingdom, especially those in the South and East.
Created in 2005, the Association Aicha for the development of proximity and the environment relies on volunteerism, innovation, respect, team spirit and international solidarity as human values that can help achieve ecological balance to ensure a healthy life for future generations.
