Created in October 2016 ahead of COP 22, which was held a month later in Marrakech, the Morocco Climate Change Competence Center (4C-Morocco) operates throughout Africa to train experts and helping to set up sustainable and bankable projects. From the banks of the Congo to Israeli universities, this group of interest public claims to want to become a continental leader on issues relating to climate change, taking into account the vulnerability of the Cherifian kingdom and other African countries.
At its head, Rajae Chafil, former adviser to the Ministry of the Environment and member of the special commission on the Moroccan development model, explains to Young Africa its objectives and priorities.
Capcov: What are the main missions of 4C-Morocco?
Rajae Chafil: As soon as the center was created, King Mohammed VI invited his peers, African Heads of State and Government, to a summit for co-emergence in Africa. During this meeting, on the sidelines of COP22, he proposed that they come together within the framework of three climate commissions: one for the Congo Basin (CCBC), one for the Sahel region (CCRS) and another for the island states of Africa. These commissions are chaired respectively by the Heads of State of the Republic of Congo, Niger and Seychelles.
Morocco, Senegal, Gabon… Who are the African champions of green finance?
In his statement on this occasion, the sovereign said in substance that these various commissions could count on 4C-Morocco. The objective is to strengthen cooperation, partnerships and the exchange of know-how between all African countries in the fight against global warming.
How does this cooperation materialize today ?
