The planned digital strategy concerns institutions as well as farms and along the value chain of agricultural sectors.
The agricultural sector in Morocco is preparing its digital revolution. The Department of Agriculture is on a draft strategic roadmap to initiate digital transformation in the sector. According to the services of Mohamed Seddiki, the digitization of agriculture is not an option but a necessity in a global context marked by the rise of technologies adapted to agriculture. “Digital transformation is a central element of effective management. Technology today offers a wide range of high-performance tools, all along the agricultural and agri-food value chain to improve productivity, quality and competitiveness and therefore constitute a growth driver for the agricultural sector”, emphasizes the Ministry. The latter must thus order on September 29, the study to serve as a basis for strategic thinking that will provide the sector with an integrated vision to operate its digital transformation.
The planned digital strategy concerns institutions (central administrations, decentralized services, ORMVA, establishments and structures under the supervision of the Department of Agriculture) as well as farms and along the value chain of agricultural sectors. The study for which the ministry reserves a budget of more than 4.5 million DH will have to define the orientation axes of the digitalization strategy of the sector in terms of strategic framework: vision and ambitions in the medium and long term. Similarly, the consultation establishes a detailed action plan which includes a description of the programs, sub-programs, projects, measures and priority levers to achieve the objectives, the priority use cases, the technological foundations, the parties concerned, the model organizational structure, leadership, governance, implementation schedule and cost estimate.
