Morocco - Urban Transport Sector Development Policy Loans Program (English)

The development objective of the Development Policy Loans (DPL) is to improve the efficiency of urban transport in Morocco's large cities through: a) better governance of the sector; b) increased performance and supply of urban transport services and infrastructure; and c) higher environmental and social sector sustainability. The single tranche DPL will support the Government's urban transport reform program and accelerate its implementation. The growth of cities and the accompanying social and economic changes are essential features of Morocco's current development process. Improving urban transport has become a key priority for Morocco's central and local governments. It will focus on key institutional and regulatory measures as well as the implementation of the Government's reform program in main cities, primarily Casablanca and Rabat. Bank support to the urban transport sector in Morocco has been provided in close coordination with international partners, including especially the Agence Francaise de Developpement (AFD) and the European Investment Bank (EIB) which are currently providing financial and technical assistance to the sector. This program was designed with support from the Bank, which, at Government's request, has been involved in the sector since 2006 through an in-depth relationship focused on technical support, assistance in capacity building, and transferring best practices and lessons of experience from other middle income countries.
