Industrie du Maroc: special edition on circular economy in Morocco - Regionalprogramm Energiesicherheit und Klimawandel Naher Osten und Nordafrika
The circular economy is a model for economic growth and prosperity with a focus on sustainability. By eliminating waste from products, design processes, supply chains and production processes it aims to minimise negative externalities such as pollution and waste, while maximising the productivity of resources that are used in these processes. Circular economy and its potentials for sustainability in Morocco have been integrated into the government's development strategy and policies. The Ministry of Energy, Water and Mines, for example, has a decentralised policy to promote the reorientation of economic flows towards the use of renewable resources and materials by intensifying the efforts of local communities. Morocco is thus an interesting case to examine the application and effectiveness of the circular economy in one of the countries of the MENA region.
These themes were the subject of a special edition of the Industrie du Maroc magazine entitled: "Circular Economy in Morocco: challenges and perspectives" in partnership with KAS-REMENA. This publication was presented at a press conference in Casablanca on 19 December. It was an opportunity to highlight the importance of adopting a circular economy vision in Morocco and its benefits to the national economy.
