Sustainable Consumption and Production: Morocco launches National Plan and sectorial Plans on Building and Food
December 9, 2016
Morocco has finalised its National Framework Plan on Sustainable Consumption and Production and two sectorial plans on Sustainable Building and Sustainable Food, with the support of the EU-funded SwitchMed programme.
The implementation of the sectorial Plan on Sustainable Building seeks to promote a global ecodesign approach to buildings in Morocco and the progressive development of a public and private park of sustainable buildings.
The Plan on Sustainable Food aims at strengthening Moroccan agricultural policy and the setting up of instruments and mechanisms for the development of a sustainable agriculture and the awareness of the consumers for purchasing more environmentally friendly food.
The SwitchMed sustainable consumption and production programme aims to promote a switch by the Mediterranean economies towards sustainable consumption and production patterns and green economy, including low-emission development, through demonstration and dissemination of methods that improve resource and energy efficiency. It also seeks to minimise the environmental impacts associated with the life cycle of products and services and, where possible, to promote renewable energy.
