Is Morocco Heading Towards a Food Crisis?

Seven years of severe drought and a massive drop in rainfall, Morocco has lost most of it’s agricultural areas. Almost a million hectares of agricultural lands remain dry with water vanishing from major dams. Although there are plans to generate water needed for irrigation through desalination, it will take at least a decade for the plans to materialize. Moroccan farmers feel it might be too late by then.

Pray for God’s mercy upon Morocco. Pray for rains to save the autumn crops (The Bible, Psalm 6:2).
