Contexte : Following the Arab Spring in 2011, the Government of Morocco initiated a series of ambitious constitutional reforms to improve the political and economic participation for all Moroccans, which included several historical prerogatives to increase civil society’s role in the public policy process. While Morocco has numerous active Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), most lack the capacity to take on the greater responsibilities granted to them by the new 2011 constitution. In the royal speech at Parliament’s opening session in October 2016, the King called upon all administrations, including local government, to improve their relations with citizens and promote mechanisms for greater participation and consultation in the political process.

There remains a need to help both government and civil society work together to ensure a more inclusive government that represents the interests of all citizens, especially women, youth, and marginalized groups. By increasing the capacity of civil society to engage with the government and facilitating the development of institutionalized mechanisms for civic participation in government decision-making, Morocco will be better situated to implement its reform agenda in a peaceful and sustainable manner. USAID aims to take advantage of the recent constitutional prerogatives to include citizens in the public policy process by acting as a platform to facilitate dialogue and exchange between Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and different government and institutional actors.

USAID SUPPORTS MOROCCAN CSOs in their policy advocacy efforts by providing them with tailored technical assistance in developing their constituent networks, forming effective coalitions, and developing sound policy recommendations. The Program also awards competitive grants for advocacy projects.
