The Biden administration is planning to invest up to $2 million in a green energy initiative in Morocco, which aims to build “resilience to climate change impacts” with a focus on women and girls 

The initiative will be funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), a top foreign aid agency 

President Joe Biden has made it a top priority of the federal government to fight the “climate crisis,” which he declared in a January 2021 executive order to be “more necessary and urgent than ever” 

The newly unveiled program underscores how the Biden administration has taken sweeping steps on an international basis to champion green energy, to the ire of pro-fossil fuel organizations
