The United Nations in Morocco 

In Morocco, the United Nations development system (UNDS) is represented by 18 agencies, funds and programmes, and entities carrying out their activities in line with their specific mandates and with the United Nations Cooperation Framework for Sustainable Development (UNSDCF) signed with the Government of Morocco. 

The United Nations Country Team (UNCT) is composed of representatives of these organizations and operates under the leadership of the Resident Coordinator whose role is to bring together the various entities composing the Team in order to strengthen the coherence and effectiveness of the work of the UNDS in Morocco. 

Key interventions 

  1. The UNDS has provided substantial support for building the capacities of national stakeholders and for the generation of tools and data. Targeted training has thus been provided to thousands of executives and stakeholders in the public and private sectors. The capacities of institutional stakeholders were strengthened on priority issues through several surveys, studies, reports, methodological tools and information mechanisms. 

  2. The support of the UNDS to national efforts in implementing Agenda 2030 has focused on sustainable and inclusive development priorities, including democratic governance and advanced regionalization, health, agriculture, education, inclusion and reduction of inequalities and vulnerabilities, as well as women's empowerment and environmental sustainability. 

  3. Through joint interventions led by its various entities, the UNDS has been able to support national efforts on cross-cutting issues relating to public policy harmonization, as well as on SDG reporting, migrations and asylum, youth, disability and human rights. 

  4. The UNDS has supported the introduction of high-potential innovations in promising areas such as voltaic energy systems in public transportation and lighting. 

  5. The advocacy work carried out by the UNDS has accompanied and supported national efforts, especially on gender issues, reproductive health and women's empowerment, aquaculture, the mainstreaming of the SDGs in business strategies, and child protection. 

  6. The UNDS has supported South-South cooperation, providing training and experience-sharing to Moroccan stakeholders and Sub-Saharan African countries such as Cameroon, Senegal, Madagascar, Sudan, Côte d'Ivoire and Guinea.
