Rural Development Project in the Eastern Middle Atlas Mountains

Rural Development Project in the Eastern Middle Atlas Mountains

This project seeks to improve the living conditions of rural populations in one of Morocco's poorest regions. Small-scale farmers, women, unemployed young people and landless labourers are among the project participants. A number of different development activities are being pursued: improved natural resource management, rational water use, improved farming techniques, soil and water conservation, rehabilitation of rural tracks, access to rural financial services, promotion of microenterprise, and any other activity identified by the population.

All formulation of development plans, programming and implementation of activities will be carried out by the beneficiaries in collaboration with the project team, to ensure that their immediate needs are assigned priority.

Over time, the poor people living in this region will become active participants in the community-based management of a development process geared towards growth and diversification of their incomes.
