The Mohammed VI Foundation for Environmental Protection and the United Nations Development Program signed on October 27, 2020 a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in which they pledged to strengthen their collaboration around a set of common objectives related to the conservation and protection of the environment as well as the improvement of living conditions.
This MoU serves to formalize a fruitful collaboration which has existed for several years.
Covering an initial period of 5 years, this MoU defines a framework for partnership and cooperation in the following priority areas::
– The promotion of education for sustainable development, awareness, knowledge sharing and training, especially in Africa, on key issues such as air quality, sustainable mobility, climate change, management of coastal and marine areas and ocean sustainability;
– The development of environmental education, in alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in close collaboration with the Hassan II International Environmental Training Center as a Regional and African Hub, within the framework of South-South and triangular cooperation;
– The development of physical, digital and hybrid educational activities and tools in support of education for sustainable development and environmental education;
– The development of partnership platforms to engage socio-economic actors in environmental management and sustainable development, including monitoring progress in the implementation of SDGs.
This partnership will support the efforts of the Kingdom of Morocco towards a new model of inclusive, sustainable and resilient development, and will contribute to the enhancement of the Moroccan experience in Africa and the world.
