2010 - 2013

The Morocco Economic Competitiveness Program (MEC) is a four-year United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded economic growth program that takes a multi-sectoral approach to reduce barriers to productivity, trade and investment in Morocco. The Program has three components:

  1. Improving the economic enabling environment.
  2. Using water sustainably for agricultural growth
  3. Strengthening workforce development.

ECO Consult is providing technical assistance to MEC during its program life in improving the capacity of key Government of Morocco institutions to implement water/agricultural policies; develop institutional and operational structures for agricultural wastewater reuse at the regional level (Meknes and Oriental); finalize and support implementation of treated wastewater reuse schemes in the Meknes agricultural pilot project; complete a feasibility study on the wastewater reuse downstream of the wastewater treatment plants in Oujda (replication of the Meknes study); and facilitate the creation of a partnership between selected organizations within the Government of Morocco and the Royal Hashemite Government of Jordan.
