Morocco plays a key role in Africa

As one of the most developed African countries, Morocco can play a key role in solving water problems in North Africa.

Improving groundwater systems and rainwater retention

Morocco is seen as one of the focus countries in WWn's Africa strategy. As such, ONEE (Office National Électricité et d'Eau) will have a partnership role in the Africa strategy and in supporting the development of other regional countries in areas relating to water and sanitation. WWn is supporting ONEE in making technical improvements to the operation of waste water treatment and in advising on the provision of an adequate supply of water throughout the entire year. For example by improving the groundwater systems and rainwater retention.

Obtained results and expected results

  • Initiative to establish a training centre for neighbouring countries in accordance with World Waternet's Africa Concept;
  • Implementation and optimalisation of the use of ozone in water treatment;

"The employees of World Waternet are more than willing to share any knowledge and experience they have developed with ONEE. So it is real cooperation in every sense of the word."
