Project title

Environmental Management Project in Morocco (Lot 1)

Project description

As part of the Environmental Management Project financed by a World Bank loan to the Kingdom of Morocco, STELLA staff worked with the Ministry of the Environment to establish measures to reduce pollution and promote resource conservation, use appropriate technologies, and increase public environmental awareness. STELLA staff also designed a long-term plan for institutional development and capacity building through training, both in-country and overseas. After preparing an environmental code that provides a framework for environmental laws, STELLA staff reviewed existing laws on hazardous materials and wastes and suggested changes to increase prevention. STELLA staff also proposed a format for collective environmental protection agreements between industrial sectors and the government.
