Public Debate: Energy Transition in Morocco from a Sustainability and Inclusivity Approach

21 June 2021
Online Event
The European Green Deal commits to developing a stronger green deal diplomacy, and specially to placing emphasis on supporting its immediate neighbours through strong environment, energy, and climate partnerships with the Southern Neighbourhood. Among the pathways to advancing sustainability and decarbonisation, the Green Economy concept has gained

popularity as an attempt to create more inclusive and environmentally-friendly economic development.


The research which will be presented in this webinar is the result of the EuroMeSCo Policy Study “A Euro-Mediterranean Green Deal? Towards a Green Economy in the Southern Mediterranean”, carried out in the framework of the EuroMeSCo: Connecting the Dots project, co-funded by the EU and the IEMed. The project contributes to inclusive and evidence-based policymaking by fostering research and recommendations in relation with the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) South priorities, with focus on economic development, migration, and security. The project aims to connect the dots among diverse stakeholders as well as among the EU, its Southern Neighbours, and the wider region. It develops a wide range of research, dialogue, and dissemination activities.

More specifically, the present webinar will focus on the case of energy transition in Morocco, assessed from a sustainability and inclusivity approach

This even was co-organised by the Center for Environment, Human Security and Governance (CERES)
