TALIM welcomed Smith College Professor of Government Gregory White to the Legation October 27 for an informal round table conversation with professors and researchers from Tangier’s Abdelmalek Essaadi University.

Participants engaged in lively exchanges about links between the environment and touristic and overall development of “Tangier Metropole,” an ambitious program to develop the Tangier region from Cap Spartel in the west to beyond the port of Tangier Med in the east.

Much discussion focused on the challenges of guaranteeing water supplies and meeting sanitation needs in a part of Morocco facing growing climatic challenges that manifest themselves both in lower overall rainfall levels along with an increase in extreme weather events resulting in more flash floods, landslides, etc…

We hope to welcome Professor Smith back to Tangier in 2015 as he continues his research into this important and timely topic.
