A joint ministerial decision ends the state subsidy & More Latest News Here

 

Faced with the worsening water shortage in Morocco and the call launched by several civil society organizations to put an end to the crops that consume the most water, the government finally reacted by deciding to exclude crops that deplete our water resources from aid allocated to local irrigation.

In a joint decision, the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries, Rural Development, Water and Forests, Mohamed Sadiki, and the Deputy Minister in charge of the budget, Fouzi Lekjaa, announced the implementation of the decision setting the terms and conditions for granting the State financial subsidy for hydro-agricultural development on farms, which had been previously signed, last May, with the Ministry of the Interior.

In its first article, the new decision, signed jointly, specifies the crops not eligible for support from local irrigation projects, including avocado trees, new citrus plantations and red watermelons.

Recently, several NGOs, civil society associations and human rights activists have warned that the continued establishment of farms to grow water-intensive crops will undermine the foundations of ecological stability, especially in areas with chronic drought, such as southeastern Morocco, where the cultivation of watermelon, one of the most water-consuming crops, has flourished.

The agriculture minister had previously said at a House of Councilors meeting that discussed the department’s sub-budget that his department does not have the power to prevent farmers from investing in a certain type of cultures, but that he works to guide them in choosing the appropriate cultures.

Thus, the articles of the joint decision of the Ministries of Agriculture, Interior and Budget No. farms, will be applied to local irrigation projects for which the prior authorization application files have been submitted from July 11, 2022.

The implementation of the decision excluding local irrigation projects for the cultivation of avocado trees, watermelon and new citrus fruits, has been entrusted to the competent services of the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Economy and Finance , according to the competences of each ministerial department.
