Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Decarbonising Transport in Emerging Economies - Morocco: Disseminiation Event

ITF Meeting ITF Meeting

Transport activity in Morocco is set to expand. Freight volumes could see an annual increase of 4% and passenger volumes of 5%, according to ITF estimates. This corresponds to around two times the estimated rate of increase of transport volumes in OECD countries.

The main challenge for decarbonising Morocco’s transport sector is to keep CO2 emissions in check while rapidly enhancing its transport infrastructure network. Modernising the road and highway network is a government priority. This aims primarily at improving connectivity between Morocco’s urban centres and providing better infrastructure for tourists. One result could be a rise in road traffic and related emissions. Developing public transport in cities is one mitigation measure envisioned in the Moroccan NDCs.

Secretary-General Young Tae Kim opens this event that presents the results of ITF work on decarbonising Morocco's transport sector.
