Governance of risk management in Morocco

Just like numerous other countries, the strategic framework supporting risk management in Morocco was built gradually, often in the aftermath of major disasters. Despite the considerable advances made in recent years, the current framework is still characterised by a plethora of isolated initiatives. Their impact remains restricted by a lack of coordination in the absence of a platform linking the capabilities and roles of all involved stakeholders. This chapter describes the regulatory and institutional framework for risk governance in Morocco1. It will look at the definition of individual roles and responsibilities, and assess the overall consistency of the system and its ability to reach set targets. It examines the effectiveness of existing measures, and proposes – on the basis of international experience – recommendations to improve risk governance in Morocco.
