CRESTA Zones map data for Morocco helps to analyse and present natural hazard risk, based on the system established by the world’s leading reinsurers.

CRESTA Zones Map Data
for Morocco

CRESTA zones were originally developed as a joint project of the Swiss Reinsurance Company, the Gerling-Konzern Globale Reinsurance Company and the Munich Reinsurance Company. Europa Technologies was part of the original team who brought the standard into the digital mapping era and has maintained a CRESTA zone map data product longer than any other vendor.

Insurance professionals need accurate and reliable maps and databases. In today’s times of climate change, demand has increased for location intelligence to manage risks and reduce exposure. Our CRESTA Zones map data for Morocco offers insurers an important basis for aggregated risk assessment, exposure management and reinsurance negotiation & reporting.

The Kingdom of Morocco is situated in the far north-west of Africa, in the Maghreb region. It has coastline along both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea and shares land borders with Algeria and Western Sahara, and claims several islands off its coast. The capital city is Rabat.
The only north African nation to escape Ottoman domination and ruled by familial dynasties for centuries, Morocco’s position so close to Europe and at the mouth of the Mediterranean Sea was strategically important. In 1912 it was recognised as so useful to France and Spain that they divided the country into protectorates. By 1956, however, Morocco had regained its independence and reunified. Although relatively stable, Morocco is still in dispute over the territory of Western Sahara. Morocco claims two-thirds of the country and despite efforts to reach resolution, the issue of sovereignty remains disputed. It is now run as a unitary semi-constitutional monarchy and is divided into twelve regions.
Morocco boasts one of the largest economies in Africa. Whilst the agriculture sector is the largest employer, the service sector is by far the largest contributor economically. Crops include cereals and high-quality fruit and olives for export. Industry comprises mining, construction and manufacturing, but tourism is a huge earner for Morocco, which is one of the most visited countries in Africa.
Demographically, Morocco is a young country with a population that is becoming increasingly urbanised - currently around 65% of the people live in or around cities. The majority of citizens have Arab-Berber heritage. The official languages are Arabic and Berber.
Culturally, Morocco has an extremely rich heritage, with influences from the Arab world, Africa and Europe. Stunning Moorish architecture and art act as the backdrops for many places. Music and literature have characteristics from all elements of Morocco’s heritage, and its cuisine is very diversified. The national sport is soccer.
On the world stage Morocco is a member of the United Nations and the African Union.

Global CRESTA Plus

Global CRESTA Plus is our digital implementation of the CRESTA standard. Given a location in Morocco, the product enables applications to look up the applicable CRESTA zone and then analyse/present aggregate risk across a portfolio. Applications can be further enhanced by adding a variety of natural hazard data sets such as earthquake locations, storm paths, meteorological, geological and insurance-specific statistical data.

Global CRESTA Plus can be licensed just for Morocco, by continent or world-wide.
