The national wetland strategy 2014-2025

The High Commissioner for Water and Forests and Desertification has published the national wetland strategy 2014-2025 (snzh) after a long process of national and international consultation.
SNZH is the result of a joint contribution of several actors involved in different stages of its development process. The grepom / birdlife morocco, a partner of the High Commission for Water and Forests and the fight against desertification in the field of bird conservation, has been involved in this process and is aware of the efforts it has to develop to contribute to the sustainability of the biodiversity of the country’s wetlands.
The aim of this strategy is to establish mechanisms and processes that will ensure the sustainable use of Moroccan wetlands, in the sense that they guarantee both the conservation of their heritage values and their ecosystem services. This is based on the identification and justification of major issues that characterize past and current wetland uses and whose negative effects have served as a basis for justifying these mechanisms.
These issues were identified on the basis of a diagnostic document on the distinctive characteristics of Moroccan wetlands, their main heritage values and the services they provide to populations (dakki & menioui 2014), and with reference to the concepts and principles adopted In the development of this strategy.
In this same vision, the objectives were formulated in an innovative way, allowing them to be translated into ‘expected conservation results’. Among these objectives is the development of a public-nong partnership on wetlands, where grepom / birdlife morocco can play a fundamental role with other national NGOs.
The contribution of the grepom to the implementation of snzh is part of several objectives / axes of conservation and sustainable use:
– establishment and implementation of national plans for the rehabilitation and sustainable management of the heritage fauna of wetlands;
– contribution to the integration of sustainable wetland management into sectoral and local government policies;
– supplying the space management departments with knowledge and know-how necessary for the sustainable use of wetlands;
– establishment of a national mechanism for the development and sharing of information on wetlands;
– promotion of the development of regional wetland training and research teams and structures;
– promotion of informal training for the benefit of the actors of management of the wetlands and the space in general;
– promoting the integration of actions to promote the ecosystem services of wetlands in management plans.
