Bouregreg Valley is distinguished by the high quality of its urban and rural landscapes. It’s both : the lung of the metropolitan area of Rabat-Salé and the central space that brings together major regional green areas into a coherent whole.
Marginalized for a long time, the valley was gradually transformed into an illegal landfill, a solid waste, wastewater discharges and leachate into the waters of the river, unregulated exploitation of quarries for extraction of construction materials, degradation of forests, uncontrolled urbanization , etc.

Priority is given to the pollution of the valley and the river, the rehabilitation and the reforestation of quarries and the safeguarding of natural site as a whole.
