The region of Fez-Meknes has embarked on an ambitious plan to support the youth in its professional integration through the implementation of the strategy Generation Green. This initiative is based on a regional agricultural plan that aims to provide income-generating employment opportunities for young people. Among the measures envisaged, are offers of collective land development, representing about 50,000 hectares available for young agricultural entrepreneurs.
In addition, support will be provided for the creation of agricultural projects and businesses, especially services. And to ensure the success of these projects, the region also plans to provide professional training and qualification. The plan does not lack ambition and estimates that at least 26,000 young agricultural entrepreneurs will benefit from aid for the creation of projects and agricultural investment. These aids should allow the creation of 17,000 jobs in the field of agricultural and processing services, thus offering new opportunities for youth.
In addition, no less than 17,000 young people will also benefit from training and agricultural qualification to acquire the skills necessary for the success of their projects. This initiative will allow the Fez-Meknes region to strengthen its agricultural potential while contributing to the reduction of youth unemployment and the improvement of the living conditions of local communities.

Toward a new generation of farmers in Fez-Meknes
To enable a truly entrepreneurial approach in agriculture, support, and modernization are essential. To achieve this, Mohamed Mezzour, Provincial Director of Agriculture in Fez, believes it is essential to accelerate and expand the process of land ownership, as well as to provide the necessary infrastructure for land development. It is also important to provide adequate supervision and training, as well as access to all incentives of the Agricultural Development Fund. In this way, farmers of all ages can be effectively supported in developing their businesses. To address these issues, the Department of Agriculture has created the Regional Youth Agriculture and Agri-Food Industry Entrepreneur Center.
The center’s mission is to provide training tailored to the needs of each farmer, as well as incentives to encourage the modernization of their operations.
Creating an agricultural middle class
The “Generation Green” strategy focuses on encouraging and attracting young people to agricultural activities, especially in rural areas. The objective is to create an agricultural middle class, improve living conditions and stability in rural areas and stimulate employment.
To achieve these objectives, the strategy is based on two main pillars. The first pillar emphasizes the human element by recognizing the importance of employment and stability for youth in their rural environment. The strategy aims to ensure that young people have all the necessary conditions to succeed, in particular by promoting the rural economy based on the qualification of human capital. This will help to achieve the sustainability of projects that emerge in the rural world.
The second pillar of the strategy focuses on creating an enabling environment for youth in rural areas. This involves improving infrastructure and public services, encouraging vocational training and research, and promoting the creation of innovative and sustainable businesses.
32 MDH for 17 ANAPEC spaces in the rural region of Fez-Meknes
The National Agency for the Promotion of Employment and Skills (ANAPEC) in the Fez-Meknes region recently announced new initiatives to strengthen its presence in rural areas. Under a contract program signed with the Council of the Region of Fez-Meknes, a convention of $3.16 million (32 million dirhams) has been put in place to create 17 spaces ANAPEC in rural areas.
In addition, 9 mobile units have been deployed for complete territorial coverage. According to Mohamed Chhiba, regional director of ANAPEC in the region of Fez-Meknes, these new services will promote spatial equity by offering rural populations the same services as those available in urban areas.
“These measures are therefore an important step towards improving access to ANAPEC services in rural areas and demonstrate the agency’s commitment to the economic and social development of these regions,” he said.
