Moroccan agriculture, which is the main lever of the national economy, has been able to achieve a set of gains thanks to the ongoing mobilization around the Green Morocco scheme, which was inaugurated by His Majesty King Mohammed VI in April 2008.
The project, which enabled Moroccan agriculture, was aimed at becoming one of the first productive development sectors, modernizing agriculture, promoting agricultural investments, good integration of productive chains, ensuring food security, boosting agricultural product exports and valuing local products.
Morocco's Green Plan also aims at supporting agriculture at two levels:
The first support is for modern agriculture with added value and high productivity that respond to market requirements by encouraging private investments and adopting new means in assembling agricultural products, developing Moroccan agricultural exports, developing industrial activities related to agriculture.
The second objective is to improve the living conditions of the small farmer and to fight poverty in rural areas by raising agricultural income in the most vulnerable areas, as well as promoting solidarity farming through the launching of hundreds of women farmers' cooperatives throughout Morocco.
The Green Plan of Morocco, since its inception, has defined a great development in the creation of agricultural cooperatives in various branches of agriculture, the development of cooperation between the state and the agricultural professionals through the program contracts, the launching of projects to improve livestock breeding, the intensification of agricultural mechanization and the focus on water economy management.
