Preparing Morocco's agricultural businesses for the elements

The Ait Melloul industrial park in southwestern Morocco hosts more than 400 small businesses that collectively employ 25,000 people, most of them in citrus fruit or fish processing. Although 90 percent of Moroccan agricultural exports come from here, the area is feeling the impacts of climate change — in the form of extreme weather. Drought and flooding have become increasingly regular occurrences, affecting local communities, cooperatives and businesses. How can businesses best be armed against the effects of climate change? Could climate insurance be the answer?
