Project Description

This program enables small farmers, small and medium-sized enterprises, and the broader agribusiness sector to access markets with high quality products of selected agri-food value-chains, while increasing their resilience to climate variability in the Program areas. The proposed Program would thereby support the achievement of the Plan Maroc Vert’s higher level objective of transforming the agri-food sector into a stable and sustainable source of growth and inclusive economic development.

The program has 3 results areas:

  1. Inclusion in value-chains and market access. The Program would aim at improving coordination along selected value-chains (both horizontal and vertical coordination) with a specific focus on the inclusion of small farmers and SMEs in growing market segments, increasing the share of value-added for small farmers and SMEs, and facilitating access to new markets (domestically and internationally).
  2. Improved Quality and Traceability. The Program would aim at improving quality and traceability along selected value-chains to enable penetration into growing, high value market segments for both domestic markets and exports.
  3. Sustainability and Climate Resilience. The Program would aim at supporting MAPM’s efforts under the PMV (and the successor program after 2020) to accelerate the adoption of climate-smart and environmentally friendly practices in the agri-food sector.
