Morocco - Large Scale Irrigation Modernization Project : Maroc - Projet de Modernisation de la Grande Irrigation (French)

The development objectives of the Large Scale Irrigation Modernization Project for Morocco are: (i) for the Doukkala Regional Agricultural Development Office (ORMVA), the Gharb ORMVA, the Haouz ORMVA, and the Tadla ORMVA, to provide improved water service to farmers; and (ii) for targeted farmers in the project area, to have better access to improved irrigation technologies. The project comprises of three components. The first component, improving irrigation network infrastructure will construct pressurized irrigation networks to replace existing gravity networks (Tadla, Haouz), and renovate existing pressurized irrigation networks (Doukkala, Gharb). The second component, supporting farmers’ access to improved irrigation technologies (cost excluding taxes will strengthen farmers’ knowledge and awareness in accessing improved irrigation technologies (mainly drip irrigation), which can be adopted as a result of the improved water service provided by the ORMVAs. It will facilitate access to financing opportunities by supporting water user associations (WUAs) in jointly applying to agricultural development fund (FDA) subsidy on behalf of farmers. The third component, supporting the project implementing entities to manage the irrigation network and to implement the project will strengthen the institutional capacity of the ORMVAs in operating and maintaining the irrigation networks, to ensure that new and renovated networks are managed so as to provide farmers with an improved water service, in line with the requirements of improved irrigation technologies, and that performance remains satisfactory over time.
