  • diversifying agricultural activities through the promotion of adapted agricultural commodities
  • enhancing value of their products at the farm level through processing, packaging and direct access to profitable markets
  • ensuring the sustainability of investments by supporting cross-cutting activities

The programme is in line with the objectives of IFAD’s country strategic opportunities programme (COSOP) for Morocco, namely to:
  • strengthen participation of rural communities in the development process
  • promote access by poor rural people, particularly women and young people, to sustainable and adapted financial services
