In 2011 Morocco announced a new constitution that includes several reforms for greater civic engagement and responsiveness to citizen needs. To support the Government of Morocco in implementing these policies, USAID provides technical assistance to elected sub-national governments in targeted regions to improve their performance and accountability.

This support also empowers citizens and civil society to play a more active role in local governance by enhancing opportunities for collaboration between government and citizens around regional and local development priorities. USAID is working closely with sub-national government entities, elected officials, civil society organizations, and higher education institutions to deliver these programs, with particular emphasis on empowering youth, women, and persons with disabilities to become dynamic and empowered members of their communities.
