Taroudant, Morocco - The Climate Change Performance IndexÂ (CCPI), placed Morocco at a very advanced world class ranking in terms of environmental protection and the fight against climate change.
According to the report published on January 27th, 2014, Morocco is ranked âwithin the âgoodâ rating categoryâÂ coming at the 15th position in the world and the 1st place in Africa and the Arab world.
In comparison to last yearâs ranking, Morocco has improved five places and is now in 15thÂ position within the âgoodâ performing countries.
Moroccoâs expansions of renewable energies, as well as its very low emissions level wereÂ determining factors that grant the kingdomÂ this advanced position on a global scale.
Regarding climate policies, Morocco is increasingly becoming a pioneer and ârole model for its neighborsâ and âa leader within the Arab Groupâ.
âWhat is remarkable is that Morocco aims to lead socioeconomic development towards a green economy and has installed all manner of initiatives and programs in this regard such as, for example, the national solar plan or the national action plan against global warming,â saidÂ Wendel Trio, Director of CAN-Europe and President Klaus Milke Germanwatch, the coauthors of this international report.
Once again, the first three ranks of the CCPI remain open in this yearâs edition because no single country is yet on track to prevent dangerous climate change.
