Morocco - Second Small and Medium Scale Irrigation Project (English)

Ratings for the Second Small and Medium Scale Irrigation Project for Morocco were as follows: outcomes were satisfactory, project sustainability was likely, Bank performance was satisfactory, and Borrower performance was also satisfactory. Some lessons learned included: the study on the management of mechanical brigades which is to begin, should provide a wide range of options, including that of removing these brigades and of awarding contracts to private firms for maintenance work. Monitoring of associations on all schemes and evaluation of agricultural production and farmers' income on a sample of schemes should be conducted separately. Economic impact surveys should be assigned to consulting firms. In order to make the best use of the rehabilitation works, the concerned local and regional agricultural services should be strengthened. They must be closely involved in the sub-project at the studies phase so that, once the works are completed; they can be on hand to provide qualified support. Farmers will require technical advice in order to take full advantage of the works. Continuity in the management of the project, at both central and regional levels, is essential to its successful outcome.
