Rural World Integrated Development, New Concrete Steps to Materialize King’s vision

New concrete steps were made this Thursday to materialize the royal vision of a sustainable and integrated development of the rural world, through the launch of hydraulic, hydro-agricultural and drinking water projects in the province of Essaouira.

 

King Mohammed VI, who started Wednesday a visit to Essaouira, has thus chaired the inauguration of the “Moulay Abderrahmane” dam, built on the Ksoub wadi. The dam’s construction cost amounted to about €87 million (920 million dirhams).

The Monarch also dedicated a hydro-agricultural development project in the “Ksoub perimeter”, downstream the new dam. The project required an investment €22 million (238 MDH).

The drinking water projects launched by the Monarch concern the construction of a water treatment station for the Moulay Abderrahmane dam and the laying of water supply pipes, to cost about €12 million (135 MDH). Another project to enhance access to drinking water in rural areas will cost about €18 million (192 MDH).

 

These projects are all part of the National Program for the Supply of Drinking and Irrigation Water 2020-2027 that outlines different measures to guarantee regular water supply in the country over the next eight years for a total cost of €10.8 billion (115.4 billion dirhams).
