The present project is a support to the implementation of the National Irrigation Water Saving Programme (PNEEI), whose purpose is to protect water resources and improve the living conditions of rural populations through sustainable management of these resources. The PNEEI, as well as the National Water Strategy formulated in 2009 by the Water and Environment Secretariat, provide support to the Green Morocco Plan (PMV) aimed at making agriculture a national growth engine. The project will intervene in 3 water basins (2 with high water stress levels: the Oum Rbia and the Moulouya, and the 3rd basin, the Loukkos the selection of which was based on the desire to offset the imbalance between cost of energy and the relatively low levels of development). The project will finance the construction of irrigation infrastructure within these 3 basins covering about 20,000 ha, as well as irrigation water development measures and capacity building activities for the stakeholders involved (executing agencies, Agricultural Water Users’ Associations [AUEA], etc.). The overall cost over a five-year period (2010-2014) is estimated at EUR 68.58 million.
The project objective is to ensure the rational and positive utilization of irrigation water resources against a backdrop of increasing scarcity of these resources.
The project will directly affect 5,853 farms, with a target population of almost 30,000 inhabitants.
