As a result of Morocco’s recent positive economic development, characterized by an average GDP growth of 4%, alongside ongoing urbanization and a subsequent rise in traffic volume, the country is confronted with significant challenges in ensuring the sustainability and future viability of its transport sector.

Notably, the transport sector stands as the largest national energy consumer in Morocco, accounting for over 38% of total energy consumption. Moreover, it heavily relies on imported fossil energy, contributing to the country’s trade imbalance. In 2018, the sector was responsible for approximately 19 million tonnes of GHG emissions, making up around 23% of Morocco’s total emissions. Projections suggest that, in the absence of effective mitigation measures, emissions from the transport sector will continue to surge, potentially reaching 38 million tonnes of CO2 by 2030.
