Developing a Sustainability Plan for Hammams in Morocco Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Morocco’s unique geography contributes to varying environmental conditions throughout the country, including problems with water scarcity, deforestation, and desertification. Working with Association Ribat Al-Fath, our team outlined a sustainable improvement plan for Moroccan public bathhouses, known as Hammams, to combat these national issues on a local level. A cultural tenant, the bathing ritual will never change; however, the sustainability of the institution must. Through extensive modeling, our team analyzed the different resource management systems in Hammams to produce a set of recommendations that not only mitigates the environmental impacts of the industry but also bolsters the Moroccan economy through the creation of new jobs and market sectors.
