The loan aims to help the North African country strengthen its capacity to manage the financial impact of natural disasters and climate-related shocks, it added.

It will also support the reforms designed to strengthen the financial, governance, and operational framework of the Moroccan Solidarity Fund against Catastrophic Events.

The fund is a critical tool which complements private insurance by providing compensation to the uninsured, such as the poor and most vulnerable, the MAP report said.
