This is one of a series of brief project profiles which provide insights
into the kinds of challenges Africans face in adapting to climate
change, and the strategies they are testing with research supported by
the CCAA program. The profiles are based on interviews with CCAA staff
and research team members, local officials, and community members
involved in or affected by the research.
Morocco's rural north east coast is increasingly vulnerable to the
effects of climate change - sea level rise, storm surges, and coastal
flooding. An international research team led by Morocco's École
nationale forestière d'ingénieurs is working in two neighbouring
provinces to integrate a better understanding of climate change impacts
within development plans and land use guidelines to meet the region's
many competing needs.
