Context

Support to the Ministry of Interior : Enhancing Access to Climate Finance in Morocco’s Regions

Support to subnational authorities to access green financing for the implementation of programs and bankable projects, through the:
  1. Design and establishment of a multi-sector National Financing Vehicle (NFV) to help territories (regions, municipalities and communes) access green finance;
  2. Design a Regional Pipeline Development Capacity Building Program for the Climate Change Competency Center (4C) so it can accompany the national and regional stakeholders in prioritizing and preparing a pipeline of bankable, sustainable and inclusive climate finance projects.

Support to the Ministry of Energy Transition  and Sustainable Development :

  1. Support the Moroccan government’s commitment to transition to a green economy through the plan of integration of green hydrogen into the industrial fabric. Collaborate with the different actors of the Moroccan government to define the perimeters of the local green hydrogen production. Structure a program that will be dedicated to the development of decarbonized hydrogen in Morocco. Develop policies and incentives, identify, and design a bankable project, and assist in mobilizing funding for its implementation.
  2. NDC Revision and Raising Ambition to enable Morocco to identify mitigation opportunities within the biomass sector and assess how to raise its ambition, in partnership with NDC-P Climate Action Enhancement Package (CAEP), and the Institute for Applied Material Flow Management (IfaS).
  3. Support the structuring of the Organic Waste to Energy program, in partnership with the KliK Foundation of the Government of Switzerland. GGGI will mobilize external funding to support the organizational and legal structuring of each project under the Activity as well as the upfront-financing of the biodigesters through private or public institutions such as the EU, NDC Partnership, or GCF.
  4. Designing policy approaches under the Paris Agreement Article 6, in partnership with the Norwegian Ministry of Climate and Environment.support Morocco to engage in international carbon transactions through the design of policy approaches under Article 6. The project will support host countries to develop policy approaches with a carbon price output that enables them to undertake national-level emission reductions. As with all of GGGI’s work, any intervention will need to have full country ownership and implementation will be country led – GGGI will act as enabling partner supporting the government as and when needed.
  5. Support in structuring the value chain of the used tire recycling sector, in partnership with the European Used Tire Recyclers Association (ETRA), and to develop the enabling conditions to implement a used tire material recovery ecosystem.

Support to the Ministry of Ministry of Transport and Logistics

Support in the transition to sustainable and inclusive low carbon mobility, through the:
  1. Development of a CO2-based bonus-malus system for low carbon transport;
  2. Redesign of the vehicle renewal and scrapping program in Morocco;
  3. Strengthening of rural transport by developing public transport and/or shared mobility business models and associated financing packages;
  4. Assistance with the transition from EURO 4 to EURO 6 vehicle emissions standards;
