At the heart of government policies and public debate, the issue of sustainable development in Morocco includes many ecological, economic, institutional and cultural issues, said secretary of state for sustainable development El Ouafi.

The green economy, a large-scale project in which Morocco is making headway, is the best example of a laudable alliance between economic growth and ecological responsibility, El Ouafi told MAP, adding that the transition towards this model tops the priorities set by her department.

Aware of the strategic importance of this process, whose basic idea is to create environment-friendly employment and value added, the official has made the recycling of industrial waste her main concern.

Seven sectors were identified as part of the national program on waste management, namely plastic, polychlorinated biphenyl, batteries, tires, edible oils, lubricating oils and cardboard, El Ouafi said.
