Abstract

With the assistance of Ribat Al Fath this project identified the relationships that natural and organic farmers form within the Moroccan agricultural sector and how these relationships influence the farmers’ abilities to combat agricultural challenges. The team conducted interviews with farmers, and governmental and non-governmental organizations and analyzed the commonly mentioned themes in these interviews. The team used these themes to determine shortcomings in the support system for natural and organic farmers in Morocco and possible solutions to the farmers’ challenges. Based on the results, the team developed a set of recommendations to improve this support system and created a prototype booklet that compiles useful networking data to distribute to farmers throughout Morocco.
