The "Land productivity" project aims to improve the governance and productivity of land in order to better meet the needs of investors and attract more investment through the implementation of three activities: "Land Governance", "Industrial Land" and "Rural Land" .
- The "Land Governance" activity ($ 10.5 million) will support the Government in (i) the development of a national land strategy and an action plan for its implementation, according to a participatory approach promoting consensus building and ownership of this strategy by all actors; and (ii) implementation of the action plan's priority actions.
- The "Industrial Land" activity ($ 127 million) focuses on the implementation of three components: (i) the creation of a Center of Expertise for Industrial Land Development (CEILD); (ii) the design of a new model for the development of sustainable industrial parks and the revitalization of existing industrial zones, market-oriented and favoring public-private partnerships and environmental and social sustainability.This model will be implemented, on a pilot basis, in three industrial zones; and (iii) the establishment of a fund for sustainable industrial zones (FONZID) to support projects improving the governance and sustainability of existing or new industrial zones.
- The "Rural Land" activity ($ 33 million) aims to develop an new optimized and simplified procedure for the transformation of joint ownership of collective land located in irrigation perimeters and governed by Dahir no. 1-69-30 of July 25, 1969 to individual properties for the benefit of rights holders (operation known as "melkisation"). This optimized procedure will be implemented, on a pilot basis, over an area of 66,000 hectares of collective land within irrigation perimeters of Gharb (51,000 hectares) and Haouz (15,000 hectares). In addition, accompanying measures should be implemented to maximize the impact of the melkisation of collective land located in irrigation perimeters. These measures include facilitating access to bank credits for investment realization and land valorization, strengthening farmers' capacities and designing and testing tools to facilitate the exit of indivision.
