Theme 7: Capacity--Oral Sessions

Description

In Morocco, forests act as a grazing reserve all year long and in a normal year produce 1.5 billion feed units, i.e. 17 % of the national forage assessment. The pastoral question is one of the factors involved in the desertification of forested areas against a bioclimatic background where more than 93% of the national territory is arid. In 2016, the Water and Forestry Department in cooperation with its partners, devised a nation-wide sylvo-pastoral strategy. The approach adopted consists in sustainably managing sylvo-pastoral resources over the long term based on good governance of all goods and services offered by forested areas. This sylvo-pastoral strategy deals with questions relating to the restoration of natural ecosystems, governance and access to resources, the revival of pastoral practices and capacity-building at the local level.
