Pays : Maroc
Localisation : Tangier-Tetouan, Oriental-Al Hoceima, Casablanca-Settat, Rabat-Sale-Kenitra, Marrakech-Safi, and Fez-Meknes

Durée : 2016-2021

Contexte : While numerous, Moroccan civil society organizations lack the ability to enact systemic change and play the role of broker between citizens and government actors. At the same time, the legal and fiscal environment continues to create significant challenges for civil society.

In support of the Government of Morocco’s efforts to increase civic participation, USAID is providing direct grants to five civil society organizations (CSOs) to strengthen their capacities and become intermediary support organizations (ISOs) that help develop the skills of their entire network and effectively engage with the government on behalf of citizens. The five selected ISOs are long-standing local organizations that are embedded in their communities and work to advocate for citizens’ priorities and interests.

Through direct grants, USAID supports the ISOs in promoting locally driven development by : * STRENGTHENING ISO INTERNAL CAPACITIES, organizational and technical practices, subjectmatter expertise, and overall skills to become the “go-to” center for other CSOs. * BUILDING CORE SKILLS OF PARTNER CSOS to more effectively influence public policy making and implementation. * DEVELOPING NETWORKS among other CSOs to collectively engage in the public policy process, conduct advocacy work, and enforce accountability of decision-makers in addition to defending a more permissive legal environment for CSOs in Morocco.
