News MOROCCO: AFD allocates €51 million to Onee to secure access to water in the north

The National Electricity and Water Board (Onee) of Morocco has received new funding to improve drinking water supply in Morocco. This involves 51 million euros granted by the French Development Agency (AFD). € 50 million of this amount represents a loan and €1 million a grant for studies and institutional capacity building.

The funds will be used to secure access to safe drinking water in the northern provinces of Morocco, Al Hoceima, Driouch, Nador and Taounate. “Water supply duration will be reduced and the quality of the resource improved. It is also about helping to preserve water resources by reducing leaks, improving network efficiency and mobilising sustainable resources,” says Mihoub Mezouaghi, AFD’s Director in Morocco. The improvement of Onee’s services will take place in both urban and rural areas.
