Strengthening urban resilience in Morocco : Building capacity and identifying risk to better protect cities and manage disasters (English)

This short brief describes how building urban resilience in Morocco at both the local and national level has helped to increase the application of risk information in public policy and investment planning, informed government policy and strategies, and improved performance of national and city agencies in the quality and timeliness of emergency response.

The technical assistance project presented in the brief proposes an adaptation of a Comprehensive Urban Resilience methodology to the context of Morocco. It provides a scalable model that more cities can benefit from at a later stage by determining the resilience demand, resilience capacity, and resulting type of resilience strategy that can be developed at their level, depending on their size and the context. Additionally, municipalities were supported through trainings, workshops, twinning arrangements across municipalities, and support in diagnostics and in developing macro-level urban resilience plans. 

With this project, Moroccan cities—and 20,000 city inhabitants— are now better protected through improved identification and understanding of disaster risks as well as enhanced warning and managing of disasters at national, local, and community levels.
