Outline of the Programme:
The Government of the United States of America, via the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), and the Government of Morocco (GoM) have signed a Compact (Compact) totalling $450 million to support a five year program with the objective of poverty reduction through economic growth in Morocco. The programme will be overseen by MCA-Morocco, an entity to be created by the GoM for the duration of the Compact, for the purpose of implementing the program19. The five year timeline for the program will begin at Entry into Force of the Compact, which is expected in mid-2017.
The Morocco Compact is composed of two projects: “Education and Training for Employability” and “Land Productivity.” The “Land Productivity” Project is made up of three activities: “Governance”, “Rural Land” and “Industrial Land”. Building on work already undertaken by the GoM, the Governance Activity aims to support the development and implementation of a National Land Strategy to address land governance and land market constraints to investment and productivity. The Rural and Industrial Land activities complement the Governance Activity by developing and implementing models that will address the constraints to increasing the productivity of rural and industrial land. They will also support the Governance Activity with reforms of relevant legal and institutional frameworks specific to those sectors.
