Igniting Climate Entrepreneurship in MOROCCO

The environment in Morocco, like many other low- to high-income countries, is particularly vulnerable to climate change. However, unlike other countries facing similar struggles, the Moroccan government has responded to these challenges and imbalances through a green growth agenda. This agenda is firmly oriented toward climate change mitigation and adaptation. Further motivated by concerns not only about energy security — but also about economic development and poverty reduction — the Moroccan government invested more than US2 billion in clean energy technologies and installed 166 megawatts (MW) of capacity between the years 2009 and 2013.1 The primary goal of this investment was to drastically reduce the energy dependence on foreign sources and become increasingly more energy self-sufficient.
