Merja Zerga, Morocco
Its goal is to make the cultivation of strawberries in the area more sustainable with local ecosystems while continuing to provide incomes for local farmers.
The mechanisms for achieving this goal include implementing good agricultural practices, identifying an appropriate market mechanism for farmers and improving the management of plastic waste. The identiﬁcation and implementation of the mechanisms will be laid out in a new overall management plan and vision for the area, taking advantage of the experience gained by WWF-Spain and OEMN in Doñana, Spain.
