Signature of a framework agreement between the National Human Rights Council and the Marrakech-Safi Region

The National Human Rights Council (CNDH), represented by the National Human Rights Training Institute- Driss Benzekri (INFDH-DB) and the Marrakech-Safi Region, represented by La Maison de l’élu (the House of Elected Officials), will proceed on 11 October 2018 at 10:30 am in La Maison de l’élu, Marrakech, to sign a framework agreement partnership on strengthening the capacity of territorial collectivities in the region.

The partnership agreement will be signed by Mr. Driss El Yazami, CNDH Chairperson and Mr. Ahmed Akhchichine, President of the Regional Council of Marrakech-Safi. It aims at strengthening the capacities of elected officials, civil servants and local actors of territorial collectivities in human rights and freedoms.

As part of the implementation of the 2011 Constitution and the advanced regionalization in Morocco, the role of regions and the importance their powers and attributions transferred to them by the State require the adoption of a deep process of upgrading territorial administration level, qualification and professionalism of local elected representatives, as well as the inclusion of civil society actors in a participatory approach.

The rapprochement of La Maison de l’élu (the first of its kind in Morocco) and the INFDH-DB is part of this perspective. It is also intended as a leading experience in the Kingdom, likely to widespread it in other regions in the future.

In accordance with this agreement, both parties commit to collaborate in several areas including continuing education, sharing good practices and documentations, joint organization of symposia, round tables and workshops on themes related to human rights, territorial justice and sustainable development.

Adress : Maison de l’élu de la région Marrakech-Safi  (Rue Ibn Hanbal, Quartier Hivernage, Marrakech)
