Project General Description

The present emergency aid operation is part of the financing of the action program defined by the Government of the Kingdom of Morocco following the floods recorded in the Gharb region in February 2009. It is in line with Bank Group guidelines for emergency assistance and is part of humanitarian relief from natural disasters. Bank financing of up to US $ 1 million (US $ 1,000,000) complements efforts by the Government of Morocco and will specifically contribute to the rehabilitation of degraded hydro-agricultural development networks in the Gharb region. This support will help, in the medium term, to reduce land losses and agricultural production related to floods.

Project Objectives

The general objective of the program is to mitigate the devastating effects of these floods through the following activities: (i) the implementation of support operations for the farmers concerned; (ii) reconversion of the areas affected by spring crops; (iii) the rehabilitation of degraded hydroagricultural equipment; and (iv) maintenance and creation of farm tracks. Specifically, the Bank's intervention will fund urgent actions of irrigation systems in the Gharb area destroyed by the floods to allow the region to resume agricultural production which is essential for the country.


The direct beneficiaries of this emergency aid are: the Ministry of Agriculture and Maritime Fisheries and the farmers and breeders affected by the floods in the disaster area, whose total number is estimated at 37,300.
