Inter-ministerial Dialogue on Climate Change

Morocco held an Inter-ministerial Dialogue on climate change, where the NDC priorities and next steps were discussed. The idea of the Dialogue was to introduce the financial assessments to policy makers and to get their consent and input for this work ahead, and to ensure their ownership over this process. During the Dialogue, participants also agreed on their priority sectors for NDC implementation: energy, housing and waste.

Training on Assessing Climate-related Financial and Investment Flows

UNDP climate finance expert Susanne Olbrisch conducted a training on the Investment and Financial Flows (IF&F) methodology for the national team to conduct the assessments in the priority sectors. Along with the participants from key line ministries and institutions, Morocco has also hired a set of experts from the Morocco's Price Waterhouse Coopers, who will support the assessments. Morocco is also in the process of conducting a review of its Climate Public Expenditures (CPEIR), which is being carried out by the Caisse de Depot et de Gestion, with support of the NDC Support Programme.
