Secretary of State for Sustainable Development Nezha El Ouafi held talks on Monday in Songdo, South Korea, with Ousman Jarju, Director of the Country Programming Division of the Green Climate Fund (GCF), ways to strengthen cooperation between the Kingdom and the GCF.
This interview, held on the sidelines of the GCF World Programming Conference, was an opportunity to develop a work program for the next few years in favor of the privileged position that Morocco enjoys in the Fund’s programs in the region and Kingdom leadership at the regional and international levels in the areas of sustainable development and environmental conservation.
El Ouafi seized this opportunity to shed light on the dynamics experienced by the sector in Morocco under the leadership of King Mohammed VI, and highlighted the various projects launched in the Kingdom, including the National Strategy for Sustainable Development.
Recalling that the share of renewable energy in the national energy mix has reached 35%, El Ouafi stressed that Morocco has set a goal to increase the contribution of these energies to 52% of the national energy mix in 2030.
She also noted that Morocco is committed to achieving the ambitious goal of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to 42% by 2030, of which 17% of reductions are self-financing and 25% are related to international climate investments, notably through the Green Climate Fund.
