Spain Funds $2.4m Drinking Water Projects in Morocco
On Monday Morocco and Spain signed an agreement whereby the Spanish government would finance projects for drinking water in northern Morocco at a cost of of $2.4 million , Maghrib Agency Press (MAP) reported Tuesday.
The protocols were follow-up recommendations made last March by the Moroccan-Spanish Commission to provide water-supply to neighboring communities of Nador and Al Huceima, MAP said.
According to experts, although Morocco has more water resources than other countries in North Africa, its watersheds are threatened by pollution from industrial waste, agricultural runoff, and untreated wastewater.
Periodic drought and a rapidly growing population have also caused water shortages in the country -- Albawaba.com
