In Morocco, adaptation solutions are needed to address threats from droughts, high temperatures and the loss of productive assets and human capital.
The CGIAR Initiative on Climate Resilience aligns with the Green Generation Strategy of Morocco. Water management, increased social equity and scaling technologies related to climate-smart agriculture are food system priorities. Researchers and partners will work to test adaptation options, focusing on improved agricultural water management strategies; reduce risk in production system-linked livelihoods and value chains at scale; design multiscale governance for transformative adaptation; mobilize finance to build systemic resilience among vulnerable smallholder farmers; and integrate gender and social equity into innovations to address the root causes of vulnerability.
