Rabat – The climate change competence Center (4C Maroc) is preparing the launch, in the coming weeks, of the prefiguration study of the Sahel Climate Fund for the financing of the “Sahel Climate Investment Plan”, according to the Center.

During the board of directors meeting, minister of Energy, Mining and Environment, Aziz Rabbah, stressed the need to mobilize to counteract the consequences of the economic and social crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the repercussions of which will be felt for a long time to come.
“While the world’s attention is currently focused on the economic, social and political implications of the pandemic, we must not forget the other crisis that has been looming on the horizon for several years, namely the climate crisis,” Rabbah pointed out.
