Thirty four projects worth 20.8 million dirham were given green light by the Regional Committee of Human Development in Guelmim-Smara as part of the agenda to battle insecurity in 2014.
The projects are funded by the National Human Rights Institutions (NHRI) with around DH15.7million and are already approved by the provincial committees. They will be made allocated in the provinces of Guelmim, with 9 projects for a budget of nearly DH7 million, DH2.3 million provided by the NHRI, Assa Zag, with 6 projects worth DH2.6 million financed entirely by the NHRI, Smara, with 11 projects worth DH2.64 million of which DH2 million provided by the NHRI, Tata for DH3.24 million, DH3.1 million comes from NHRI and Tan Tan with DH6.3 million of which DH5.7 million is provided by NHRI.
These projects will involve in particular the upgrade and strengthening the capacity of welfare institutions in the region. The meeting of the regional committee of human development was also devoted to the deliberation of the audit submissions of the program committees which reflects the lack of a regional map of the precariousness of a provincial plan for the adversary against insecurity, inadequacy of some projects with the nature of the program and funding by the NHRI that are the prerogative of Commons and some government departments. A total of 245 projects worth $ 136.9 million dirham of which DH86.6 million is provided by the NHRI were approved in Guelmim-Smara under the program against insecurity during the period 2005-2013.
Sixteen other projects within the framework of the transversal program of the NHRI, budgeted with a total of more than DH3 million are also underway in the region. They will b delivered particularly in rural municipalities of Laksabi, Asrir and Timoulay. An important training program of 13 sessions for the benefit of local associations will be held. This initiative is part of a wider program of social reforms implemented since the accession to the throne of His Majesty King in 1999 that has a human development by putting people at the center of all reforms and actions taken.
