Agriculture at National Level

Agriculture is a vital component of the Moroccan economy and one of the primary sources of employment, employing over 40% of the working-age population. Agriculture, which accounts for 10.7% of Moroccan GDP, is intimately linked to the country's economic growth and makes significant contributions to poverty alleviation, food security, and the accomplishment of sustainable development goals.


Sectorial Strategies


Green Generation 2020-2030, 2nd national agricultural strategy after the Green Morocco Plan, aims at strengthening Morocco's agricultural assets and improving agricultural incomes through :
