The main objective of the project is to enhance and stabilise crop yields of small scale olive farmers in two Mediterranean countries, Morocco and Syria, through the optimisation of water management practices, applied to olive cultivation. Improved and more stable olive yields will then turn into improved earnings and livelihood for the olive farmers targeted by the project. Olive quality will also increase due to a more efficient water management. The project objectives will be achieved through the demonstration and dissemination of sustainable irrigation technologies and efficient irrigation techniques applied to olive cultivation
