French Development Agency supports Morocco’s low carbon transition plan
French Development Agency has pledged to enhance further its partnership with Morocco in its transition to a low-carbon economy based on clean industries in line with the international commitments made by the Kingdom to reduce CO2 emissions responsible for global warming.
To help Morocco achieve its decarbonization goals, the French agency chief Rémy Rioux signed Friday in Rabat a cooperation agreement with minister of energy transition & sustainable development Leila Benali.
Under this agreement, l’Agence Française de Development (AFD) will support Morocco’s action plan to cut carbon emissions in energy production, industry, agriculture, construction, transport, forests and waste processing.
Based on participatory and inclusive approach, this actionable plan features training and capacity building workshops focusing on energy efficiency, clean energy technologies and renewable energies.
During his visit to Morocco, the AFD Director conferred with several Moroccan officials, including minister of economy and finance Nadia Fettah Alaoui. The two sides discussed cooperation ties and the French agency’s financial backing to enable the Kingdom address social and economic challenges.
