The present intervention deals with the Upper Doukkala Irrigation Project. It consists of developing and equipping 16,000 hectares which were to make up the first of four successive tranches of a programme to irrigate 64,000 hectares. The project should permit: (i) construction of a headrace tunnel, a pumping station with four generators and a main canal; (ii) installation of irrigation systems on 16,000 hectares; (iii) re-plotting operations, opening of feeder roads, construction of sanitation systems; and (iv) installation of a scheme protection facility, and supervision of farmers. The project consists of five (05) components, namely: (A) construction of the water headrace tunnels; (B) layout of the irrigation schemes; (C) studies and supervision of works; (D) agricultural development and perimeter management; (E) project management and coordination.
The objective of the project is to contribute to the country’s food security while greatly improving Morocco’s trade balance. From a regional standpoint, this project should help increase in the medium-term, the incomes of some 27,000 individual farming households.
The main beneficiaries of the project are the agricultural populations of the Doukkala region.
