Of the requested USD 1.32 billion in funding, USD 3.41 billion were collected in the form of pledges. Promises of assistance were made by the World Bank, to the tune of USD 1.5 billion; the European Union, USD 750 million, France, USD 250 million; AfDB, USD 1.3 billion, IFAD, USD 200 million and the Swiss Cooperation, USD 75 million.

 

 

Morocco also pledged to conduct studies ahead of the implementation of the Climate Investment Plan and announced that the Commission would receive support from the “4C Maroc” Climate Change Skills Center, particularly geared towards building the capacities of its members. In a similar move, FAO, UNEP, CIF, IFDD and regional and sub-regional organizations present at the meeting reiterated their availability to support the implementation of the SR-CIP and the PPCI.
