A recent survey carried out by L’Economiste, in partnership with the Sunergia consultancy firm, on the subject of the cleanliness of cities, confirmed that only one Casablanca resident in three says he/she is satisfied with the cleanliness of his/her city, making it the least clean in Morocco, compared with other cities, such as Marrakech, Tangiers and Rabat, whose population is satisfied in this respect.
Thus, 71% of the population of the Marrakech-Safi region expressed their satisfaction with the cleanliness of their cities, followed by the inhabitants of the Tangier-Tetouan-Al-Hoceima region with a 68% satisfaction rate.
59% of the inhabitants of the Fez-Meknes region said they were satisfied with the degree of cleanliness of their cities, compared to 58% recorded in the Rabat-Salé-Kénitra, Béni Mellal-Khénifra and eastern regions.
56% and 54% correspond to the satisfaction rates recorded respectively in the regions of Draa-Tafilalet and Souss-Massa.
According to the same survey, the southern regions recorded the highest level of satisfaction of their populations about the cleanliness of their cities, with 100% in the region of Dakhla-Oued Ed-Dahab, 92% in Laayoune-Sakia Al Hamra and 83% in Guelmim-Oued Noun.
The survey, which was conducted among a sample of 1,000 people, revealed that the percentage of dissatisfaction among men is higher than that of women (36% versus 31%), just as the dissatisfaction of city dwellers is higher than that of villagers (40% versus 24%).
