Rabat – The Moroccan Agency for Energy Efficiency (AMEE) has been announced as an official partner of the Crans-Montana Forum which will be held in Barcelona, Spain, from July 5 to 8.
This year’s forum will be split up into three different international “High-Level” conferences: The International Conference on Peace in the Mediterranean, the role of Youth & the Improvement of Sport Governance; The Silk Road, which pertains to potential Chinese developments within Africa, Europe, and the Middle East; and Strengthening Women’s influence in the Necessary Change of their Society.
The three conferences will be further divided up into more specific sessions, addressing the migrants’ journeys from Africa to Europe, energy concerns within the MENA region, and managing the increase in water demand.
AMEE’s Director General Saïd Mouline will be a keynote speaker for one of the sessions and plans to address climate change, energy production, and energy efficiency.
It would serve the Kingdom well to pay close attention to this conference, given that Morocco hosted a previous forum on African Cooperation in Dakhla in March 2017. Morocco has a vested interest in the conference as the Kingdom looks to expand its reach within the region and build closer connections to Asia.
The conference, run by the world-renowned Swiss non-governmental organization, brings together government and business officials to create “a more Humane and Impartial World.”
The organization has met annually around the world since its inception in 1986 to further a range of goals, from creating new young leaders, to the role of women in global security.
