From 9 to 15 May 2022, the kick-off meeting took place in Morocco. During this week, the SuLaMo team visited the selected pilot regions north and south of the Atlas Mountains: Meknes – as semi-arid – and Errachidia and Ouarzazate – as arid example regions.
The Kick-Off event took place on 12 May at the University of Moulay Ismail (UMI) in Errachidia. A total of 35 representatives of the German and Moroccan partners as well as other institutions and stakeholders took part. The aim of the event was to introduce the project and the partners to each other, as well as to inform and involve potential stakeholders.
In addition, a meeting with the Wali of the Draa Tafilalet region was facilitated during the visit to Errachidia, an important milestone for the project launch.
