Ministry of Environment

Climate Change is mainly managed by the CC Unit within the Ministry of Environment.

Other specific structures established to deal with CC issues include:

  • The National Committee for Climatic Change ( CNCC ), set up in 1996 and made up of representatives of ministerial Departments and national institutions involved in CC issues.
  • The National Scientific and Technical Committee ( CNST- CC ), established in 2001, made up of national experts and set up as a national equivalent to IPCC.


UNFCCC Focal Point

Mr. Mohamed Nbou, Directeur des Etudes, de la Planification et de la Prospective, Ministère Délegué Chargé de l'Environnement. 

The Designated National Authority ( DNA ) 

The Designated National Authority for CDM was created on 18 September 2002. The DNA plays two roles: one is regulatory, laying down the rules and procedures of assessment and approval of CDM projects; the second is promotional, focusing on capacity building and marketing Morocco’s CDM potential.
