RSPP Working Paper nº 2020.001. Special Series on Covid 19 | Differentiated territorial effect of Covid-19 on the tourism sector in Morocco

Special Series on Covid 19

By Ilyes Boumahdi, Nouzha Zaoujal and Abdellali Fadlallah
We exploit data from an accommodation web platform to highlight the territorial impact of Covid-19 on Morocco’s tourism. We noted a cancellation rate leading to a fall in prices with greater severity in the vulnerable territories of the foothills of the Atlas and the Ultra Atlas. We noted a resilience for unclassified and higher rated hotels, and for those have built notoriety with customers in the past. Consequently, the measures to support tourism sector should privilege territories who are socioeconomically vulnerable with high level of cancellation rates, and, within regions, middle to lower class hotels.
Covid-19, tourism, territory, vulnerability, public policy.
