News MOROCCO: €648m to be committed to the circular economy of waste in six cities

Making Morocco a benchmark for cleanliness. This is the objective of the Moroccan government, which is banking on the circular economy of solid waste. Through the Moroccan Ministry of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development, it has just presented its vision for a transition to a circular economy by 2030 in the Kingdom of Morocco, valued at 7 billion Moroccan dirhams, or nearly 648 million euros. This vision is centred on the realisation of several circular projects in the cities of Rabat, Casablanca, Tangier, Fez, Marrakech and Agadir, which are also the six host cities of the 2030 World Cup, which will take place at the same time in Morocco, Spain and Portugal.

These projects will consist of selective waste collection operations, the construction of waste recycling and recovery plants in the six identified cities, campaigns to raise Moroccans’ awareness of eco-gestures such as selective sorting and waste recovery, particularly into compost, limiting waste at source and, to a greater extent, pollution.
