Abdelkebir Zahoud, who addressed on Monday the third African Carbon Forum, added that the Kingdom has taken a host of measures in this regard, including the setting up of institutional bodies to carry out actions towards promoting clean economic development.

He noted that the national regulatory framework has also been reinforced by promulgating laws on the fight against air pollution, waste management, impact studies and renewable energies.

The minister deplored the fact that Africa's contribution to the carbon market remains very limited.
