The consequences of climate change are becoming
progressively more visible in Morocco. Changes in rainfall
patterns and drought, increases in average temperatures
and heatwaves, flooding, and rising sea levels are
increasingly affecting several regions. Yet, Morocco has
a relatively low greenhouse gas (GHG) emission rate,
compared to other countries. In 20162, Morocco’s total
GHG emissions reached 86127.7 gigagram of carbon
dioxide equivalent (Gg CO2-eq), totaling around 0.2%
of global GHG emissions. However, emission levels
are anticipated to increase significantly in the coming
decades as a result of the country’s continuing economic
development.
