CGEM (Confédération Générale des Entreprises du Maroc), the largest business association in Morocco, is hosting private sector and government actors from 5 other francophones countries to learn from Morocco’s experience in helping companies seize opportunities in a green economy.

The event is co-organized by UNDP NDC Support Programme and the Support Unit of the NDC Partnership. Countries invited are Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Mali, Togo and Tunisia.

On the margin of this event, NDC Support Programme project coordinators and NDC Partnership focal points from the respective countries will meet for 1 day to exchange experience on NDC implementation, NDC revision and engagement with the NDC Partnership.

The event will aim to:

Strengthen the involvement of private energy companies and major energy consumers in the fight against climate change in several French-speaking African countries (Morocco, Côte d'Ivoire, Burkina Faso, Mali, Togo and Tunisia). More specifically, draw on Morocco's experience to identify good practices and policies that accelerate this involvement of energy companies.

The event will be structured around the following themes:

  • The importance of clean energy and energy efficiency in achieving the goals of CDNs and development in the countries of the region,
  • Private sector access to international sources of funding,
  • The best tools to promote decarbonisation of the energy sector (including tax or carbon market).
