Mobilizing Decentralized, Participatory Energy Transition in Morocco
This policy brief analyzes Morocco’s governmental approaches to creating a decentralized management system, particularly as it may impact, and in turn be shaped by, community-based renewable energy and development. Decentralization is discussed in regard to how it may be built alongside the fulfillment of Morocco‘s Municipal Charter and its commitment to ensure the community planning of projects, as well as with an enhanced National Initiative for Human Development, the government’s flagship funding program for local sustainability. Recommendations are given as to how Morocco may accelerate community-managed RE by achieving decentralization assisted by effectively implementing existing national structures for the people’s development.
