Abstract

Recent geospatial technologies offer an infinite number of opportunities in the domain of land management and governance. This is due principally to the fact that new satellites allow the collection and monitoring of important information about soil, crops, weather, and climate. In this context, this chapter presents a review of studies conducted in three semi-arid plains in Morocco during the last two decades on the combined use of geospatial technologies, modelling tools, meteorological, and ground data to manage irrigated lands in semi-arid zones. The three studied regions are located in three different sites well distributed over the country. This chapter presents a simple and clear summary of what has been performed using geospatial technologies by Moroccan researchers to improve agricultural management in irrigated areas in Morocco. Such work could help policymakers in developing efficient land governance policies by taking into account the latest scientific results.
