Appropriate Mitigation Actions for tourism
10YFP STP Portfolio: Embarking in the development of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions for tourism – The Moroccan Secretariat of State for Tourism of the Ministry of Tourism, Air Transport, Handicrafts and Social Economy in step to reduce emissions
Marrakech is at the heart of Moroccan tourism. Exuding Morocco’s cultural soul and modern spirit, the city is also a gateway to the majestic mountainscapes of the High Atlas region. Today, Marrakech is at the core of Morocco’s commitment to position itself as a sustainable, low-carbon tourism destination in the global arena.
The Moroccan Secretariat of State for Tourism of the Ministry of Tourism, Air Transport, Handicrafts and Social Economy launched a project in the context of the International Climate Initiative (IKI), which the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety supports on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag, and in alliance with UN Environment and UNDP, to assess the climate impact of tourism in Marrakech and elaborate a Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) with the ultimate aim of reducing the GHG emissions of the tourism sector of Morocco.
