Morocco raised its target to reduce greenhouse gas emission to 45% by 2030 as part of its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) in implementation of the Paris Agreement.

The goal will be reached through carrying out 61 mitigation projects in the fields of energy, industry, housing, transport, waste, agriculture and forests, the energy ministry said.

The total cost of these projects amounts to 38.8 billion dollars, the ministry said.

Morocco has already announced the goal of generating 52% of its electricity from renewable energies and has invested massively in solar and wind energy.

The industrial fabric is also gearing towards low-carbon production especially in the vital automotive and aeronautics sectors.
