In Morocco, national consultations were held in September 2017 with civil society and diaspora representivatives, scholars and researchers, represensatives of the private sector and public institutions. These national consultations have enabled Morocco to come with a consolidated contribution to the Global Compact, the "Recommendations of the Kingdom of Morocco on the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration."

The document provides a brief overview of progress achieved by the Kingdom of Morocco against each of the 23 objectives and commitments of the Global Compact, often referring, to the best extent possible, to the range of actions proposed by the Compact and considered to be relevant policy instruments and best practivces for each objective.

This overview is meant to provide elements of a qualitative baseline against which further progress will be compared. The document also identifies a set of key challenges faced by Morocco in reaching the Compact's objectives and proposes a course of action to be implemented to bring Morocco closer to fulfill the Global Compact's commitments.
