The Switzerland-Morocco Foundation for Sustainable Development (SMFD) has been recognised since its creation in 2004 as a non-profit public service provider by the Finance Department of the Canton of Geneva. The SMFD is a non-profit and a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) that has its headquarters in Geneva, an international city famous for its various International Organizations. It is a privileged entity between Switzerland and Morocco. The Board of Foundation of the SMFD is composed of several nationalities- Swiss, French, Spanish and Moroccan - coming from economic, political and academic fields.

The Foundation is actively involved in reinforcing the existing link between Switzerland and Morocco and in supporting the realization of sustainable projects that have been selected. It pursues several goals, either on its own, or thanks to collaboration with its partners.
