Rural youth in dryland areas of Morocco
"I have very close ties with agriculture. This job runs in my veins. I don't feel good the days I don't practice agriculture."
(Hafida, young farmer, Morocco)
Hamid and Hafida share their story. They talk about the difficulties in making a decent living from agriculture but also express their passion for working in the field. They also voice major concerns related to the lack of infrastructure in rural drylands and the need for more support from local and national decision makers.
This video highlights how important it is to listen to young people and incorporate their needs, views and policy discussions and decisions affecting agriculture developments in drylands.
