Abstract: The Saïss Sub-Basin surface waters are greatly reduced, and will be completely depleted within 25 years. Climate Change and Training workshops directly led to the formation of the Zoubiya cooperative by local farmers. Members pooled their resources to create a water reservoir and drip irrigation systems thereby increasing the adaptive capacity of the region in response to water shortages. Drip irrigation results in water savings of about fifty percent per unit of crop yield. This project worked with multiple stakeholders and focused on benefits for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged communities within project sites, such as contract herders and women.
