At the COP23, the international conference on Global Warming Prevention, held in Bonn between 6 and 17 November, the Director-General for the MENA region of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, Christiane Bogemann Hagedorn, announced a support program for Morocco. Specifically, German Cooperation will allocate a € 357 million grant to the North African country, of which 90% will be aimed at supporting environmental protection and renewable energy production. Christiane Bogemann Hagedorn said Morocco is an example of energy transition, as witnessed by the Ouarzazate solar power station, confirming that Germany will support the Kingdom in the pursuit of its renewable targets. In this regard, the Director-General for Enlargement recalled the partnership launched in 2016 in Marrakech in support of the implementation of the NDC (Nationally Determined Contributions), objectives climate that the nations have given themselves autonomously and voluntarily, to help maintain global temperature growth within 2 degrees Celsius.
