Can Morocco’s Agricultural Sector help in Slowing down Global Warming?

In light of the recent post on Agricultural Mitigation, the IFAD-IFPRI Partnership blog is hosting a virtual dialogue on the following two topic questions.

     

  • What are the key obstacles in Morocco for agricultural climate change mitigation?
  • What should the government do to promote agricultural mitigation?

Both or either questions may be answered at any time. Please share with us your knowledge, opinions and perspectives so we may collectively engage in a fruitful discussion of the real and potential challenges and opportunities that Morocco faces in its struggle to adapt to climate changes. For more information, read the IFAD-IFPRI Partnership Morocco country brief.

One Response to Can Morocco’s Agricultural Sector help in Slowing down Global Warming?

  1. El Aissaoui Abdellah / Ag Engineer says:

    The obstacles in Morocco for agricultural climate change mitigation are due to the ability of developing multi-institutional integral approach for promoting conservative agriculture, organic farming and freindly environmental technology. What we should do for changing farmer’s behaviours and practices from conventional to sustainable agriculture depends not only on research and extension involvements but also “and mainly” on policy makers willing.

    I think that the research body was involved since 80 years for testing and evaluating technologies to promote “best practice” packages such as minimum tillage, energy and water use efficiency and integrated crop management.

    May be the future will be interesting if the shifting from conventional intensive agriculture to sustainable conservative agriculture can be believed and carried by policy-makers and supported financially by the government to be effectively adopted at the farm level.
