Maroc : ASTI–INRA Fiche d’information

Ces dernières années ont vu une reprise de la capacité de recherche agricole marocaine qui, par suite des nombreux départs en préretraite volontaire subventionnés par l’État en 2005 et en 2009, avait souffert de lourdes pertes de chercheurs, de techniciens et d’autre personnel.

La R&D agricole marocaine est principalement financée par le gouvernement national. Les dépenses de R&D agricole sont restées relativement constantes au cours de la période 2009-2012.

Following considerable losses of agricultural researchers and technicians (as well as administrative and support staff) in response to government remuneration for voluntary retirement in 2005 and 2009, Morocco’s agricultural research capacity has begun to increase again in more recent years.

Agricultural R&D in Morocco is predominantly funded by the national government. Expenditure levels remained relatively stable during 2009–2012.

Average qualification levels of Morocco’s agricultural researchers improved during 2002–2012, with increases in both the absolute numbers as well as shares of researchers with MSc and PhD degrees.

Since the beginning of the 1980s, agricultural researcher numbers in Morocco have steadily risen. Agricultural R&D spending followed a more erratic trend in response to  fluctuations in national government funding and (foreign) donor support, though spending has trended steadily upward in recent years, given the Moroccan government’s renewed commitment to developing the agricultural sector. Morocco’s principal agricultural R&D agency, INRA, was highly dependent on government funding throughout 1991–2002, particularly because donor funding contracted over that time. However, the World Bank–led PRV initiative successfully strengthened the
institute’s management in the 1990s, in part by decentralizing many of its research activities.

INRA and the higher-education agencies also began to generate considerable shares of their funding through the sale of products and services, entering into numerous national and international research contracts. This is a very positive development, and one with substantial prospects for future growth. The introduction of competitive funding mechanisms is another positive development since the late 1990s, and one that has already promoted collaboration among the various agencies within Morocco’s national agricultural research system. Competitive funding programs have also successfully promoted effective and synergistic research practices, leveling the playing field among Morocco’s agricultural R&D agencies and compelling them to make efficient use of their scarce resources. Accompanying these changes has been significant improvement in researcher qualifications within the system in terms of the proportion of researchers holding PhDs.

Le Maroc - Abrégé de pays

Depuis le début des années 80, l’effectif des chercheurs agricoles au Maroc a augmenté de façon constante. Les dépenses consacrées à la R&D agricole ont suivi une évolution plus irrégulière correspondant aux fluctuations des financements du gouvernement national et de l’aide fournie par les donateurs (étrangers). Ces dépenses ont toutefois connu au cours de ces dernières années une progression continue, du fait de l’engagement du gouvernement marocain en faveur du développement du secteur agricole.

• L’effectif des chercheurs agricoles a connu au Maroc dans les années 80 et 90 une croissance continue tandis que le total des dépenses consacrées à la R&D agricole fluctuait assez irrégulièrement.

• L’INRA et l’IAV Hassan II sont les plus grands organismes de R&D du Maroc ; en 2002, ils représentaient respectivement 40 et 25 % du total des chercheurs ETP et des dépenses du secteur de la recherche agricole.
