The WILAYA
Since 1981, Morocco has seen a new administrative division, through the boosting of big urban spaces (Casablanca, Rabat-Salé, Fès, etc.) that the legislator deemed necessary to split to better control their development, but without influencing their harmony, nor interrupting their overall development: "the Wilaya". This new supraprefectoral structure was created to play a coordination role.
Since 1981, Morocco has seen a new administrative division, due to the expansion of big urban spaces (Casablanca, Rabat-Salé, Fès, etc.). The legislator deemed necessary to split up these regions in order to control their development adequately, without affecting their harmony, or their overall development: "the Wilaya". This new supra-prefectoral structure was created to play a coordination role.
The Wilaya, which brings together many provinces or prefectures or both at the same time, is intended to endow big urban units such as Casablanca with an administrative organization capable of meeting the needs that emerge from these expanding cities and their growing populations.
The Wilaya of the Grand Casablanca consists of two prefectures namely Casablanca and Mohammedia and two provinces :

Nouaceur and Mediouna.

• The Wilaya intervenes in the following areas:
• Coordinating the prefectures’ and the provinces’ activities controlling local authorities.
• Concentration in terms of investment and the control of urban planning.
• Upholding law and order

The importance of the Wilaya emanates from the importance of the position of the Wali who constitutes the driving force of the overall territorial administration.
