Share This

Morocco launched its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) at a National Conference on Climate Change on June 2nd in Rabat.

With about 350 attendees, the conference was very well attended and aimed to gain full support of stakeholders in the implementation of its INDC. Frédéric Gagnon-Lebrun (IISD) co-moderated the conference with M. Ould-Dada (UNEP).

Morocco submitted its INDC to the UNFCCC on June 5th, an ambitious INDC that includes an economy-wide conditional target to reduce emissions by 32% below business-as-usual emissions by 2030. It outlines a vision for Morocco to 2030 and rests, to a large extent, on a major transformation of the energy sector, particularly due to increasing water stress. This transformation notably entails “Substantially reducing fossil fuel subsidies, building on reforms already undertaken in recent years” and going for “50% renewable energy electricity production by 2025.
