Project Description

The Morocco Digital and Climate Smart Agriculture Program aims at increasing the adoption of digital and climatesmart technologies in agri-food value chains in Morocco.

The Government’s program is the next phase of the Plan Maroc Vert (PMV). The proposed project will focus on 2 key areas of the Governement’s program: the diffusion and adoption of i) climate smart technologies and practices and ii) digital technologies in agri-food value chain. The Program will mainly focus on building the ecosystem and setting up the incentive schemes to enable the private sector to provide digital and climate smart technologies and farmers and agrifood SMEs to adopt them. The increased adoption of these technologies will transform the Moroccan agri-food sector and will contribute to reaching the higher-level objectives of the new strategy: i) Creating jobs in rural areas (especially for the
youth and women); and ii) Managing natural resources in a sustainable and climate-resilient way.
