MCA-Morocco, INDH National Coordination Sign Partnership Agreement

0 269

The Millennium Challenge Account-Morocco Agency (MCA-Morocco) and the National Coordination of the National Initiative for Human Development (INDH) have recently signed a partnership agreement on the development of economic inclusion programs for disadvantaged populations through results-based financing mechanisms (RBF).

In this perspective, MCA-Morocco Agency will support the INDH National Coordination by providing the necessary technical assistance to improve the impact of Program 3 “Improvement of income and economic inclusion of young people” planned in the framework of Phase III of the INDH (2019-2023), says a joint statement from the two signatory parties.

This technical assistance, explains the same source, will cover in particular the development of performance management tools and mechanisms, capacity building of INDH technical teams with a view to ensuring the optimal use of the said mechanisms and tools and the implementation of a digital platform for the reception and orientation of young people.

Adopting a gender approach and the inclusion of young people, INDH’s Program 3 aims to contribute to improving the economic and social situation of disadvantaged populations through three components, namely support for salaried employment or “Employability”, support for entrepreneurship and support for projects in the social and solidarity economy (SSE), the release added.

The objectives of this program thus converge perfectly with those of the component “Support for the development of employment programs through financing mechanisms based on results” falling within the framework of the “Employment” activity under the cooperation program “Compact II”, concluded between the government of the Kingdom and that of the United States of America, represented by Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC).

This component intends to improve the employability of people who find it hard to have access to the labor market, particularly women and young people.
