The Zenata Eco-City is a strategic plan for the region of Casablanca, established in 2006. Through its modern and dynamic services the project aims to reduce socio-economic inequalities between the Anfa and Ain Sbaa zones, respectively East and West of the Greater Casablanca region.
Today Zenata lists over 8000 slum households and 245 industries that represent a social and economic challenge for the Eco-City, the concern is to preserve jobs and improve the quality of life. From 2012, in collaboration with European partners, donor of the project, the Zenata Development Corporation has developed a Resettlement Action Plan ( PAR) meeting the standards of the World Bank and in May 2014 the in situ resettlement plan for families living in slums was announced.
Other challenges that the plan aims to solve are optimizing natural resources and limiting the car usage in the city by incentivizing public transports, bikeways and pedestrian paths for a better quality of living.
