On 26 January 2017, Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the House of Councillors of the Moroccan Parliament during a conference on climate change legislation.
The partnership agreement sets out a framework for cooperation between WFD and the House of Councillors of Morocco between 2017 and 2020. It outlines three key areas on which WFD will support the strengthening of parliament:
- Building the capacity of the parliamentary research centre to ensure MPs have access to high quality briefings that enable them to hold the government to account
- Providing training in public policy evaluation to strengthen the oversight role of parliament in line with the vision set out in the 2011 Constitution; and
- Supporting parliament in fulfilling its roles in upholding human rights and delivering on the Sustainable Development Goals.
