Our Switcher of the month in February is Terre et Humanisme, a Moroccan initiative that develops and disseminates environmentally-friendly farming techniques
Given its valuable experience mainstreaming Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) in the MENA region through SwitchMed, the SCP/RAC has been invited in the Stakeholders conference:"Towards an initiative for the sustainable development of the Blue Economoy in the Western Mediterranean" to discuss opportunities offered by SCP in the Western Mediterranean region
Morocco has set itself ambitious targets that seek to adapt its economy to the realities of climate change. Finding ways that will protect the scarce natural resources of the country is, however, both an opportunity and a challenge for the Moroccan industry. The SwitchMed B2B event in Casablanca presented eco-innovative technologies from the EU that could help Moroccan businesses to embrace new and more environmentally friendly production techniques – an investment where serious returns for the businesses and the environment are to be made.
Adopting common methodologies to measure the environmental footprint of products is part of the EU’s efforts to move toward a green single market. But this development will also have a significant impact for businesses exporting to the European single market. SwitchMed offers guidance to stakeholders from the Lebanese industry in how to adapt and demonstrate a product’s environmental performance, preparing the industry of Lebanon for the future.
