Morocco-UNFPA Program of Action for the Promotion of Women's Rights in Workplace
Rabat - Morocco and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) recently signed a memorandum of understanding and a joint action program on health and safety in the world of work, aimed primarily at promoting the rights of women.

Under this agreement, signed by the ministry of Labor and Professional Insertion and the UNFPA office in Morocco, joint action will focus on the empowerment of women and the consolidation of their rights in the workplace, as one of the manifestations of strategic cooperation to ensure gender equality, which remains a national priority and a pillar for achieving sustainable development.

Among the key measures of this partnership are the support of labor inspectors and strengthening their capacity in terms of occupational health and safety, as well as the holding of training sessions at the local level for the benefit of some associations on labor law and the fight against gender-based violence, said the ministry in a statement.

After a first period between June and October of the current year, the two parties will develop a program of action 2022-2026 on the provision of equipment for these agents, the intensification of training of associative actors and awareness of violence against women in the workplace.
