Multicultural Cooperation for Fruit Tree Planting (Morocco)

Maroc

Titre : Multicultural Cooperation for Fruit Tree Planting (Morocco)

Région /Pays : Maroc

Zone d’intervention : Marrakech - Tensift - Al Haouz, Morocco

Dates : 10/03/2011 à 11/13/2015

Programme
This project will build a tree nursery of 80-120,000 fruit tree saplings, which grow without pesticides and have high market value. Local people already possess skills and knowledge to maintain these trees and market their fruit. Representative community members will maintain the nursery while learning to cultivate, prune, graft, transplant etc. By providing land for the nursery, the project can alleviate rural poverty and is another important example of Muslim and Jewish Moroccan collaboration. The project integrates solutions to socio-economic and environmental problems, and will : 1) after 6 years increase the income of 700 households from fruit sales, benefiting 10,000 people ; 2) diversify the economy and reduce urban migration ; 3) prevent soil erosion and offset carbon emissions ; 4) develop technical skills of 8 farmers to maintain and replenish the nursery ; 5) diversify diets with fruit consumption ; and 6) internationally exemplify Moroccan Muslim-Jewish partnership
