In 2008, Morocco adopted the Green Morocco Plan aiming to make agriculture into a driver of the national economy over the following fifteen years. To attain its ambitious goals, the Green Morocco Plan targets small and medium-sized family farms and entrepreneurial farms with large fields and access to capital. In the space of a few years, Morocco has considerably increased public investment in the agricultural sector, the result of which has notably been a rise in the amount of land under cultivation, drawing the interest of many West African agricultural development stakeholders. This brief discusses the origins and main principles of the Green Morocco Plan. It then looks at the main accomplishments of the first phase of this strategy before examining what lessons West Africa could potentially learn from it.
