IVLP Alumni in the Classroom | Aerospace in Morocco: Building a Sustainable Country
This resource was created to supplement Global Classroom Workshop,
Through its high dependency on agriculture, fishing activities, tourism, the vulnerability of key resources such as water and forestry, and an important coastal industrial activity, the Moroccan economy is especially exposed to the impacts of climate change due to its geographical location, and is prone among others to more frequent extreme weather events, water scarcity, declining agricultural production, and rise in sea level. To combat these changes and strengthen the country's infrastructure and ecosystems, the aerospace sector in Morocco is leading the charge in creating innovative sustainable advancements in farming, fishing, solar energy, ports/coastal infrastructure, and more.
This curriculum resource guide is perfect for students, educators, and community members interested in learning about Morocco's aerospace sector and the current initiatives, policies, and projects supporting Morocco's climate change response, centering the ways space technology is helping Morocco strengthen its infrastructure and economy; protect its people and ecosystems; and become a sustainable country.
