Results from this report show that increased collaboration and joint initiatives between workers, civil society, producers, European importers and government institutions have enabled change in the lives of thousands of women. This synergy is now ongoing and the collaboration between these stakeholders will continue. Looking forward, there is room for local associations, government agencies, producers and importers to build on the accomplishments achieved to date. Through the leadership that they have developed throughout the course of the programme, women workers can be central to these efforts to drive long-term sustainable changes across Morocco's agriculture sector.

La présente étude, qui constitue un essai d'évaluation des modes de règlement de litiges commerciaux au Maroc, (ci-après MRLC) permet de déterminer la nature et l'ampleur des obstacles entravant l'existence au Maroc, d'une justice commerciale de qualité et d'un environnement d'affaires plus propice.
Le programme Moukawalati, objet de notre recherche, vise à lutter contre le chômage des jeunes au Maroc à travers la promotion de l'esprit d'entreprise et l'amélioration du climat des affaires. À la lumière des résultats de notre étude quantitative et qualitative, il apparaît que l'impact de ce programme est extrêmement faible. D'où la formulation de plusieurs recommandations pour promouvoir l'autoemploi des jeunes au moyen de la création de micros et petites entreprises viables.

This paper provides a model on how altruism, "attachment" to the home country, and portfolio diversification may act as potential motives behind workers' remittances. It shows that the level of workers' remittances depends on how great are their degrees of altruism and "attachment" to their home country, and should also depend on interest rate differentials between the home country and the country of residence if portfolio diversification motives are significant in the decision to remit. The model is applied to Morocco using co-integration techniques. The paper then discusses the stability of remittances in Morocco and the policyimplications in light of the empirical findings.
This document presents a two page overview of UN Women's work on economic empowerment: "Many international commitments support women's economic empowerment, including the Beijing Platform for Action, [CEDAW] and a series of [ILO] conventions on gender equality. UN Women supports women's economic empowerment in line with these, and with the growing body of evidence that shows that gender equality significantly contributes to advancing economies and sustainable development. Working with a variety of partners, our programmes promote women's ability to secure decent jobs, accumulate assets, and influence institutions and public policies determining growth and development. One critical area of focus involves advocacy to measure women's unpaid care work, and to take actions so women and men can more readily combine it with paid employment."
