Project General Description

The Green Morocco Plan Support Project (PAPMV) is an environmental initiative. It is a sector budget support to be implemented over a 24-month period (July 2012- July 2014). The idea of the Green Morocco Plan Support Programme (PAPMV) was initiated during the Bank’s CSP 2007-2011 completion report preparation mission to Morocco in March 2011. During this mission, the Moroccan Government (GM) and the Bank showed common interest in promoting green growth by providing support to the Green Morocco Plan (PMV) considering its strategic importance for the country. The PAPMV proposes to support the implementation of the PMV [2008-2020] through targeted support for the sustainable management, valorization and preservation of agricultural water, in a context of growing scarcity of this resource. Following a “logical chain” of events, the PAPMV will target four series of reforms for agricultural water : (i) Reforms aimed at modernizing agricultural water infrastructure and strategic management; (ii) Reforms aimed at improving agricultural water governance and sustainable management; (iii) Reforms aimed at improving agricultural water productivity and development, as well as the business climate; and (iv) Reforms aimed at promoting gender, water resources protection and energy conservation.

Project Objectives

The strategic objective of the programme is to contribute to strengthening the competitiveness of the agricultural sector for inclusive economic growth. The specific objective is to improve the business climate and ensure sustainable agricultural water management. The expected programme outcomes concern the improvement of the institutional framework for agricultural water management and development in line with the guidelines of the Green Morocco Plan.

Beneficiaries

The direct beneficiaries of this programme are socio-professional organizations, farmers/irrigators, youths and women, private enterprises, agro-industrial units and administrative entities concerned. The programme will also benefit MAPM and MEMEE central and decentralized entities (Departments of Water Resources, Environment and Energy). These entities will be strengthened in terms of regulations and managerial capacity. It will help to strengthen the decentralization process, as well as knowledge building, skills transfer and the clear definition of duties and responsibilities by underscoring a performance-and results-based management culture and promotion of a contractual approach based on mutual obligations.
