The head of government, Saad Eddine El Otmani, and Ivanka Trump, advisor to US President Donald Trump, have the signing ceremony of a cooperation agreement between the Kingdom of Morocco and the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) on the implementation of implementation of the land governance project.
The agreement was signed by Interior Minister Abdelouafi Laftit and Millennium Challenge Corporation CEO Sean Cairncross to support the implementation of the new laws related to Soulaliyate lands, as part of the Global Development Initiative of Women’s Prosperity (W-GDP), as well as the development and implementation of the National Land Strategy Project.
As part of this agreement, a center will be set up to dedicate the integration of the gender approach in the project of the Soulaliyates lands for the benefit of the beneficiaries. The center will be responsible for establishing a database on women’s land rights to promote their access to land as land beneficiaries. This database will allow monitoring of the evolution of the number of beneficiaries before and after the revision of the relevant legal framework.
In addition, the MCC will support the development of the National Land Strategy Project and the implementation of the priority procedures of this strategy after its adoption, with the aim of promoting women’s access to land ownership.
