The first ICAT project supported the development of a MRV framework in the Souss-Massa region, aligned with Morocco’s national strategy of regionalization and as a pilot for the expansion to other regions. The project involved the establishment of institutional and legal requirements for the MRV framework, development of data collection and QA/QC procedures, and piloting the MRV framework for the energy and agriculture sectors.

A second project is deepening the Souss-Massa MRV framework, focusing on updating the Territorial Climate Change Strategy according to Morocco’s updated NDC. Under this scope, ICAT supports the (i) definition of adaptation trends and Cost & Benefit Analysis of adaptation measures in the water sector, (ii) GHG inventory, projections and policy impact assessment of mitigation measures for the agriculture and energy sectors in terms of GHG and sustainable development impacts, (iii) operationalize the MRV framework to track the Territorial Climate Change Strategy and and integrate it into the existing MRV.

At the same time, a third ICAT project, in cooperation with the national government, is supporting Morocco in developing a climate finance tracking framework.
