Development Index

During the tenure of Aziz Akhannouch, it has come to light that Morocco’s standing in the development index is being surpassed by both Algeria and Libya. Despite the assurances offered by Akhannouch’s administration upon assuming power, about advancements in the societal realm, Morocco continues to adjust the sequencing of indicators associated with human development.

In the recently published index showcasing the most developed nations across Africa, predicated upon the continent-wide human development index, Morocco holds the ninth position with a score of 0.693 points. This placement relegates Morocco to a position trailing behind countries such as Libya, Algeria, Botswana, and Seychelles, which occupy the apex of the African hierarchy in terms of development.

The intermediate range of development, represented by a score ranging between 0.55 and 0.77, characterizes Morocco’s performance. The human development index evaluates factors including governance, governmental efficacy, employment opportunities, and accessibility to healthcare and social services. This comprehensive analysis is based on insights gleaned from the report disseminated by the “Spotton” agency.

On a global scale, Morocco attains the 123rd rank in the Human Development Index for the year 2021/2022, as conferred by the United Nations Development Programme. This assessment encompasses 191 nations, positioning Morocco within the international context of development standings.
