SPRI Global was happy to partner with UNICEF Morocco on redesigning social protection for Morocco. The subsystems of Morocco’s social protection system have been developed in a fragmented manner over a longer period of time. Today, Morocco’s social protection systems consists of a social security system that is contributory (CMR, RCAR, CNSS, CNOPS, …), a partially contributory social protection system (RAMED), and non-contributory social protection (Tayssir, Kafala, IINDH, welfare institutions …). Although they comprise a single system, these individual components have been introduced over time on a basis of necessity, reacting to specific societal needs; They have not been conceived of as working conjunctively in a system.
Morocco, as a middle-income country, is now seizing the opportunity to reboot its social protection instruments in order to make them more effective, both in terms of their specific targets and in their contribution to economic growth overall. The reformulation of social policy should define social protection with a focus on equitability and synergy – hence the need to strengthen the harmonization and convergence of social protection policies and programs.
Morocco, at its current state of development, needs a more efficient social protection system able to have a significant impact on its people lives. SPRI Global’s consultancy produced three reports: a benchmarking report (L’évolution de la protection sociale au Maroc comparée à une sélection de pays en Afrique, en Asie et en Amérique latine); a mapping of the current social protection system (Mapping de la protection sociale au Maroc) and a vision for the social protection system in Morocco (Une vision intégrée de la protection sociale au Maroc).
