|Organization providing technical support
|Entities within the Moroccan national government (ADEREE, MAPM, MEMEE), Credit Agricole, entities representing solar pumping system suppliers and vocational training centres. Moreover, the NAMA has been given financial support to technical assistance by UNEP, and indirect technical support by GIZ, ADEME, AFFM.
The Solar pumping NAMA is the most advanced energy NAMA. Its objective is to encourage the implementation of and expand the scope of Morocco's national solar pumping program. The latter aims to replace butane/diesel irrigation pumps used by small-scale farmers with solar pumps, thus creating savings for the government, reducing reliance on fossil fuels and reducing GHG emissions. The NAMA has a target of 30,000 pumps installed between 2015 and 2025. The NAMA is comprised of two main components, a financial component and a technical support component, and specifically targets small farmers who are unable to qualify for low-interest loans from Crédit Agricole.

As in the case of other NAMAs, the problem here is the lack of implication by the banking sector. The sector is not involved enough in energy efficiency and renewable energy.
Impact and MRV
|Cumulative GHG reductions: No data available
No information has been provided on mitigative capacity
|The NAMA is expected to lead to improvements in health and access to water (assessed by UNEP DTU).
|It is also expected to lead to reduction of government energy subsidies/national energy bill, creation of jobs through installation of PV systems, reduction of vulnerability of small farms to increases in energy prices, and preservation of income sustainability in rural areas (assessed by UNEP DTU).
|It will contribute to conservation of water resources (assessed by UNEP DTU).
