Emergency management in Morocco

Effective major risk management can mitigate the negative human, social, economic and environmental consequences of disasters. Well-planned and organised emergency management is a critical element of disaster response. This chapter reviews Morocco’s progress in emergency management while confronting serious natural disaster risks. It examines the organisational structures implemented for planning disaster response by the various agencies, warning mechanisms, inter-agency coordination and crisis communications. In order to respond to major crises, a unified crisis communication system, the involvement of civil society, and improved international cooperation are key issues to achieve further progress in Morocco.
