Sustainability | Free Full-Text | Using Local Agroecological Knowledge in Climate Change Adaptation: A Study of Tree-Based Options in Northern Morocco

Sustainability | Free Full-Text | Using Local Agroecological Knowledge in Climate Change Adaptation: A Study of Tree-Based Options in Northern Morocco | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

Communities in northern Morocco are vulnerable to increasing water scarcity and food insecurity. Context specific adaptation options thus need to be identified to sustain livelihoods and agroecosystems in this region, and increase the resilience of vulnerable smallholders, and their farming systems, to undesired effects of social-ecological change. This study took a knowledge-based systems approach to explore whether and how tree-based (i.e., agroforestry) options could contribute to meeting these adaptation needs.

Morocco to suspend soft wheat customs duty on Nov. 1

Morocco to suspend soft wheat customs duty on Nov. 1 | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it
Morocco will cancel customs duty on soft wheat on November 1 to ensure regular supply, the agriculture ministry said on Tuesday. To protect the local harvest, Morocco imposed a 135 percent customs duty which will last until October 31.

The move followed an exceptional cereals output this year of 10.3 million tonnes, including of 4.91 million tonnes of soft wheat, 2.42 million tonnes of hard wheat and 2.92 of durum. The duty cancellation would ensure regular supply "in light of the slow pace of the collection of national output", the agriculture and fisheries ministry said in a statement. It gave no details. The decision, which will enter into force after the approval of the government council, will enable importers to better plan reserves, it said.
