The place of peripherical regions in Moroccan planning

MAS P. De ;


In contrast to other countries with a colonial past, Morocco had an existing precolonial urban pattern concentrated in the interior and a high population-density in unfavourable mountainous regions. The economic and spatial planning after 1956 aiming at a decrease of the existing inequalities in prosperity, failed. An analysis of the projected governmental investments from the plan 1973-1977 indicates that, in contrast to its goals, the social and spatial inequalities will grow. The position of the peripheral regions, largely dependent on rainfed agriculture will therefore deteriorate. (AGD).
