The Agency for Agricultural Development (ADA) is a public institution with legal and financial independence, under the tutelage of the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Rural Development, Water and Forests.
Since its inception in 2009, ADA has made a fundamental contribution to implementing the agricultural strategy of the Kingdom of Morocco. ADA also works to improve the business climate and encourage agricultural investment, by mobilizing and valuing agricultural lands within the framework of partnership between the state and the private sector.
ADA establishes agricultural new generation aggregation projects, supports young entrepreneurs, as well as develops solidarity agriculture, by encouraging and implementing sustainable projects with the aim of improving farmers’ income, creating job opportunities for youth and empowering rural women.
As part of the implementation of the strategy for development of the marketing of the moroccan local products, ADA organizes continuous programs for the rehabilitation of groups producing local products, as well as accompanying them in order to access regular markets at the national and international levels.
In addition, as an accredited agency by the Climate Adaptation Fund (FA) and the Green Climate Fund (GCF), ADA has direct access to the financial resources of these funds in order to finance programs related to climate change in the agricultural sector and other vital sectors in Morocco.
