The design of a pilot environmental accounting is the subject of the mandate allocated to SBA and Ecosys by the Moroccan Ministry of Environment. Based on an initial assessment of the Moroccan initiatives in this area and an international benchmarking, SBA and Ecosys developed, in spring 2014, a first pilot account highlighting a priority area of the country.

Support to the Moroccan Professional Associations

Following a tender of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC), SBA has been selected for implementing a programme to support professional associations in Morocco (Appui Suisse aux Associations Professionnelles au Maroc, ASAP-M) until December 2016. Through a participatory approach, SBA has declined the proposed objectives of the ASAP-M program that allow SME's and producers cooperations to grow (employment and turnover) in rural areas. The program will focus on farming, beekeeping and some agricultural niche products; the gender component will also be a cross-cutting theme in each of the programme components.
