Water infrastructure assessment for long-term community resilience - Update 3/01/24 - 11 pm Morocco

Assessment of water infrastructure
Assessment of water infrastructure

In the aftermath of the earthquake in the High Atlas region, efforts to assist the affected communities are in full swing. Assessments of water infrastructure have been completed in the Imegdal and Ighil Communes as part of the recovery phase of the Earthquake relief efforts conducted in the High Atlas. Unfortunately, many water reservoirs, canals and Sagias were damaged or destroyed by the earthquake, halting the communities that relied on them just before the planting season.

The assessment included a thorough evaluation of the infrastructure of the reservoirs, the number of douars (villages) and households benefiting from them, and the surface area of agricultural terraces covered. Our goal is to plan and guide the reconstruction of these vital water reservoirs, enabling local communities to become more resilient in the post-earthquake period.

Working hand-in-hand with our local partners, significant progress has been made in various initiatives. In water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) actions, showers and toilets have been assembled for five villages in the Ighil Commune. Simultaneously, the douars of Aït Hssain, Izilalen, and Taourirt in the Imegdal Commune have received fodder for their livestock.

In addition to the accomplished initiatives, it is crucial to highlight that the interventions undertaken will continue to have a substantial impact on the affected communities. Ongoing planning and assessments are underway to determine the most effective ways to extend support and benefit the communities on a larger scale. We remain committed to the long-term recovery and well-being of the communities in the High Atlas, ensuring that our efforts contribute to the sustained improvement of their lives. Your continued support is instrumental in making these endeavours successful, and we look forward to further enhancing the positive outcomes for the communities in need.
