TASHAROC FOR AN OPEN REGION

MID-LEVEL CONSULTANT SUPPORTING CSOs IN UTILIZING THE PETITIONS MECHANISM OF THE TTAH REGION

April - September 2019

Background

The purpose of the Tasharoc project is to support implementation of Morocco s Advanced Regionalisation process in the northern region of Tanger, T touan and Al Hoce ma (TTAH), through the provision of technical assistance and capacity building to its regional government bodies and civil society. It is structured around the following three key areas: strengthening the capacity of regional government bodies, primarily the TTAH Regional Council (RC) to better deliver on and respond to the needs of citizens; providing support to more effective service delivery, particularly on implementation and monitoring of the Plan de D veloppement R gional (PDR); and convening opportunities for improved dialogue and collaborative working between regional stakeholders (government institutions, civil society, media, private sector and citizens). Tasharoc is a two-year project based in Tangiers, funded by the UK Government and implemented by a consortium of DAI, NDI and Golden Resources.

Regional Council

The Regional Council is an elected local body governed by public law and is, according to Organic Law 111-14, in charge of various development areas in the region. The Regional Council of the TTAH region is one of the 12 regional councils of Morocco that constitute the first administrative division in the framework of advanced regionalisation.

Context

The organic law N 111-14 of Regionalisation provides an opportunity for citizens and associations to petition the RC in a direct procedure. The process is prescribed in the National Platform for Citizen Participation of the Government of Morocco, as well as in the DGCL Guide for Petitions Process printed in 2018. The TTAH RC is yet to establish a response mechanism for petitions.
