Titre : Watershed Management Project tin the Oued Mellah watershed and the Allal El Fassi dam upper watershed (Morocco)

Pays : Maroc

Date : 2007

Présentation
This project calls for afforestation, steps to improve the livelihood of regional citizens, and other comprehensive forest preservation and development activities in the Oued Mellah watershed and the Allal El Fassi dam upper watershed. These watershed were listed among the top-priority project areas in the National Watershed Management Plan (PNABV), issued in 1996 by the Government of the Kingdom of Morocco (Haut Commissariat aux Eaux et Forêts et à la Lutte contre la Désertification (HCEFLCD)). The project will contribute to the restoration of the forest, the improvement of the living environment of local population, the preservation of the forest resources, erosion countermeasures, and the alleviation of the poverty of the targeted area. In Morocco, which lies in arid and semi-arid zones, the effects of climate change and overgrazing have caused the loss of forests, and this has caused a decline in soil and water conservation functions. This in turn has led to problems with flooding and sedimentation at dams. Given these circumstances, the preservation of forest resources in the areas upstream of dams that are substantially damaged by erosion is a pressing issue. The proceeds of the loan will be used for procurement of resources, machinery, and materials needed for afforestation and small-scale erosion control work, planning and execution of village development activities, and consulting services
