The agreement, which was inked by minister of agriculture Aziz Akhannouch and FAO representative in Morocco Michael Hage, on the sidelines of the 12th Morocco's International Agriculture Fair (SIAM2017), aims to address food security challenges, slash poverty in rural areas and improve natural resources management to face climate change.

Speaking on this occasion, Hage highlighted that FAO's assistance to Morocco focuses on three main areas, namely sustainable, inclusive and efficient development of food and forest systems, sustainable, inclusive and integrated management of natural resources and fragile areas facing climate change, and the development of south-south and triangular cooperation to achieve food security.

"The CPF is an essential framework for FAO to better meet the needs of the country. It is a tool for planning which has been elaborated on the basis of broad consultations with national institutions, civil society and international cooperation partners in order to tackle the priorities set in national strategies in relation with FAO mandate," Hage said.

On this occasion, a project of Morocco-FAO-Swaziland South-South cooperation was signed, earmarking 233K US dollars for the benefit of Swaziland.

The CPF is a tool for the FAO country-level strategic prioritization and overall medium-term country-level programming.
