Water management

image of Water management

Morocco has limited potential with respect to water resources and faces substantial challenges in that regard. An uneven distribution of water in space and time is the main feature of the hydrological regime. Yearly precipitation may diverge significantly (almost on a 1:10 ratio) and the same asymmetry may be observed among water basins in the course of the hydrological year. Furthermore, similarly to most Mediterranean countries, Morocco has experienced severe droughts in recent decades with occasional extreme precipitation episodes and disastrous flash floods. The water quality is also questionable.
