On 21 and 22 November, the Ministry of Energy and Sustainable Development (MEM) in Rabat held a two-day training session to launch 13 new Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans (SECAPs) in Morocco.

Organized in collaboration with the Moroccan Association of Eco-Cities (AMEV) and the MEM, this event brought together 13 municipal technical managers mobilized on the energy and climate issues.

The training was launched by Ms. Maya Aherdan, National Focal Point of the CES MED project in Morocco and Mr. Pierre Couté, Maghreb Senior Project Expert. The training also welcomed the 4 Moroccan communes of the GIZ EDMITA project.

The next meeting, for the finalization of the BEI of the transport sector of the communes, is planned to take place on December 15. Five new communes of this group have already joined the Covenant of Mayors this semester.

The CES-MED project is an EU-funded regional initiative set up to provide training and technical assistance support to local and national authorities in the southern Mediterranean region, with a view to helping them respond more actively to sustainable policy challenges.

CES-MED ensures that the actions proposed match with the objectives of the Covenant of Mayors: to reach and even go beyond the European objective to reduce CO2 emissions by 20% thanks to the improvement of energy efficiency and the increased use of sustainable energy.
