In the 2012 report “Water Governance in Latin American and Caribbean countries: A Multi-level-Approach”, OECD addressed the major co-ordination and capacity-building issues related to the design, regulation and implementation of water policies. It focused on three points: the role and responsibilities of public actors in water policy at central and sub-national levels, the governance challenges related to their interaction at horizontal and vertical levels, and the tools and strategies currently in use to enhance governance in the water sector.

One of the tools developed by OECD is the Multi-level Governance Framework, which provides governments with a reading template to identify main challenges, or “gaps” in water policy as well as possible policy responses. Thus, Seven gaps were categorized, whatever countries’ institutional settings and hydrological features: administrative gap, information gap, policy gap, capacity gap, funding gap, objective gap, and accountability gap

Morocco knows several decades an increase in extreme events resulting from climate change, including the major floods, lasting drought… It is in this perspective that, in the field of reservoir dams, design processes begin to take account of arrangements that could lead to reduce the impact of climate change. These arrangements are intended to maximize the size of the reservoir dams, develop or increase the capacity of those in operation to improve their performance faced to the growing needs even in time of pronounced irregularity and reduce losses to the sea due to over-flows in times of high hydraulicity.
