Irrigation and Potable Water Sources

Drip Irrigation System
Drip Irrigation System

Throughout Morocco HAF is committed to creating green economic growth as means to lift rural farmers out of poverty and increase household revenues. In turn, improved incomes can be reinvested into communities to support sustainable development.  Through employing a community participatory approach, HAF partners with communities to identify their greatest needs. This approach facilitates the implementation of projects as it sets up communities as central agents in their own development.

HAF’s projects related to irrigation systems for fruit tree or medicinal plant nurseries, such as in Azilal or Taroudant, fits into this method of sustainable development as it exposes farmers to organic agricultural methods and helps to diversify their sources of income.  While these communities identified irrigation as a priority, HAF provided the infrastructure needed to meet this need. In the past five months HAF has made exciting headway in these two provinces:

  1. In Azilal HAF installed two drip irrigation systems as well as one potable water basin
  2. In Taroudant HAF finished building three irrigation systems—the first serving over 300 people—and one potable basin.

The irrigation systems have provided the necessary resource, water, to both maintain community nurseries, and support the development of communities. Connected to this project, the installation of potable water basins supplied clean water to communities. Thanks to your generous support HAF has been able to expand the scope of its irrigation system projects and make a real difference in Morocco’s agricultural communities.
