PAGE Morocco held the first edition of the Green Crossroads, a 3-day national conference, on 22-24 November in collaboration with the Ministry of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development of Morocco. This event presented the results of the Inclusive Green Economy scoping study by PAGE and launched debates with national stakeholders on the green transition.
The conference was launched by a plenary presentation of the results of the global PAGE study on the green economy in Morocco, which highlighted the priority sectors of interventions of the PAGE program during its next years of implementation in the country: renewable energy, water and waste management with industry and agriculture as the main economic sectors of interventions.
The conference not only promoted the national dialogue on green economy, but also guided partners through the activities of PAGE Morocco.
“This partnership develops concrete actions to accompany Morocco towards a greener and more inclusive transition. In this regard, we are developing actions and identifying sectors where we can have an impact. In this sense, our actions aim to build capacity, provide the necessary assistance to public policies, develop knowledge through studies and analyses, and mobilize funding.”, said Ali Benrayen, PAGE National Coordinator.
Under the theme “Green Economy in Morocco: Challenges and Opportunities”, this event brought together the main national partners, including members of the PAGE steering committee in Morocco, green economy actors from the institutional fields, the private sector, civil society, academia, as well as international technical and financial partners. The three-day allowed to collect the suggestions of the actors and to favor the circulation of the produced data while favoring the synergies.
