Operational details & security context
According to the Moroccan Constitution, Morocco is a sovereign state. There is a developed infrastructure, governed by the Highway Traffic, which refers to all the legislative provisions governing traffic on public roads (sidewalks, pavements, highways, etc.) by users (pedestrians, two-wheelers with or without motors, cars, etc. In the region and where the volunteers are assigned, there is access to medical services, pharmacies, police centres and supermarkets.
Generally, Morocco is a safe country. However, some security and cultural rules need to be respected (dress code, not going out late, not keeping big amount of money, avoid crowded places and manifestations, avoid driving and take certified taxis).
The hosting organization will share before and at the very beginning of the project security briefing and a security management plan with all healthy and safety rules to follow.
