Sustainable Development: Moroccoâ€™s Driving Force for Growth
2015 and 2016 are key years to highlight Moroccoâ€™s efforts in sustainable tourism and development. Thanks to the insightful vision of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, Morocco is fully engaged in a model of sustainable development. The human being is at the heart of this model, as well as the preservation and enhancement of natural and cultural resources, rural development and poverty alleviation. Morocco has thus adopted a National Charter
for Environment and Sustainable Development, which has entered into force through the approval of law 99-12 on the National Charter for Environment and Sustainable Development. While deploying ambitious strategies to preserve and enhance its natural heritage, water and energy, Morocco also endeavors to integrate sustainable development and climate change components in all its public policies and development
projects. These actions actually reflect the international commitment of the Kingdom to fight address climate change issues, taken at the conferences of Rio and Johannesburg. The country intends to further confirm its commitments at COP 21 in Paris in December and COP 22 that Morocco will host in 2016.
