This solution focuses on the management of an irrigated scheme on the river Sebou, in the Northern Moroccoby Water Users Associations (WUA). The Sebou Basin concentrates 20% of Morocco’s population and holds a third of the country’s water resources. This Basin is a real “water tower” for a semi-arid Morocco and the aim is to sustainably mobilize its resources. Two projects of irrigation has been implemented in Moyen Sebou (the first one from 1996 to 2001 covering6500 ha of irrigated land and the second one from 2010 to 2014 covering4500 ha).
