Summary

This project is improving the health of Amazigh women and their unique ecosystem : the argan forest. It is using a One Health approach linking up the health of people, the health of animals and the health of the environment. Amazigh women are the traditional custodians of the endemic argan forest which represents the last shield against desertification. Your support will reduce families'health risks from their domestic animals and their environment and help protect this unique biodiversity.

Challenge

Many Amazigh women living in the Argan Biosphere Reserve in south-west Morocco have a livelihood based on the traditional use of the endemic argan tree and its precious oil. They manage a growing number of domestic animals which health status is not monitored. Their families are increasingly exposed to One Health challenges including diseases transmitted by animals (such as rabies), scorpion stings, non-communicable diseases (diabetes etc) and water-borne diseases.

Solution

One Health modules will be specifically developed in Amazigh to educate women and their families in the prevention of One Health risks through improved animal care, better hygiene and water management, pest control, and biodiversity conservation. One health caravans will educate Amazigh women and their families and deliver human and animal health care. One Health students projects will help better understand the complex cycles of these diseases in this unique ecosystem.

Long-Term Impact

The health of Amazigh women and of their animals will be improved while conserving the argan forest, thus increasing the resilience of local communities towards climate change. This pilot phase will be replicated to other women's associations in the Argan Biosphere Reserve. The pivotal role of Amazigh women as custodians of this unique biodiversity will be promoted, thus ensuring the conservation of this unique bio-cultural heritage.
