OECD Review of Risk Management Policies Morocco

This study analyses initiatives undertaken in Morocco to support the management of critical risks. It covers steps taken by central government and local authorities, research centres, the private sector, and civil society. It focuses particularly on questions relating to the governance of risks, co-ordination, and the engagement of key stakeholders. The analysis looks at the entire risk management cycle, including risk assessment, prevention and mitigation, emergency response and management, recovery and reconstruction. It also identifies the challenges that Morocco still needs address in order to improve the resilience of its economy and society to critical risks.

Hide / Show Abstract

A fundamental responsibility of public authorities, but also of all social and business stakeholders, is to ensure resilience to critical risks. Such resilience is needed to guarantee people’s safety and well-being, enable sustainable economic growth, and maintain confidence in public and economic institutions. Morocco is exposed to a number of risks that have an increasing probability of occurring. These risks are weather-related in particular, but others are of geological, technological or human origin. The sources of the country’s vulnerabilities have increased in tandem with economic development, against a backdrop of rapid urbanisation, a concentration of certain activities on the coast, and a growing exposure to the effects of climate change.
