Delayed Rainfall: Royal Initiative Will Help Cope with Water Stress (Official)
Casablanca – The royal initiative to alleviate the impact of delayed rainfall on agricultural activity will help cope with the water stress experienced by the country, said Friday president of the Council of the Casablanca-Settat region, Abdellatif Maazouz.
As usual, HM King Mohammed VI has taken the lead and has put in place decisive measures to save this situation by mobilizing, first, all the administrations concerned, but especially by earmarking a substantial budget of 10 billion dirhams to cover some expenses related to the rural world, Maazouz told MAP.
He also explained that this amount represents a significant amount of money that will be injected into the national economy and will help maintain economic activity as if it were a normal year.
In addition, the president of the region referred to the ambitious national strategy launched by the Sovereign on the strengthening of water resources by 2027 including dams, desalination, recovery of rainwater and recycling of wastewater.
