Difficulty in accessing land has been identified as a major constraint to investment in all productive sectors, particularly in the industrial and agricultural sectors. This situation, characterized by a governance deficit, is attributable to legal, institutional and managerial constraints, which are hampering the deployment of an integrated land policy capable of guaranteeing the optimization of land resources and meeting the current and future needs of investors. At the industrial level, weak governance has resulted in insufficient levels of valuation of industrial zones, in insufficient supply and subject to speculation and in the inadequacy of the supply to the needs of investors. On the other hand, the low productivity of agricultural land finds its origin, amongst other things, in the multiplicity of legal statuses, fragmentation and the issues of joint ownership.
The "Land Productivity" project, with a budget of $ 170 million, aims to improve the land governance and productivity to better meet the needs of investors and attract more investment.
The "Land Productivity" project is structured around three activities:
* The "Land Governance" activity ($ 10.5 million) will support the Government in:
* The “Industrial Land” activity ($ 127 million) focuses on the implementation of three components:
* The "Rural land" activity ($ 33 million) aims at the implementation of a “melkisation”’s pilot operation of collective land located in irrigation perimeters and governed by Dahir no. 1-69-30 of July 25, 1969, using an optimized and simplified procedure. This “melkisation” operation consist in the transformation of joint ownership of this land into private properties for the benefit of rights holders. This operation will be implemented, on a pilot basis, over an area of 66,000 Ha of collective land within irrigation perimeters of Gharb (51,000 Ha) and Haouz (15,000 Ha). To maximize the benefits of this pilot “melkisation” operation, accompanying measures are being considered. These measures include facilitating access to finance for investment and development of land, functional literacy, strengthening farmer’s technical and professional capacities and developing income-generating activities and jobs, especially for women and youths.
