International Day of Argania

The Kingdom of Morocco and the United Nations are celebrating International Day of Argania which is held 10th May each year.

It was a great honour to work with Her Excellency Wassane Zailachi Ambassador of  the Kingdom of Morocco in Australia on this celebratory video.

The theme of this year aims to highlight the role of Argania in reinforcing resilient communities, adapting to climate change and empowering rural women through the support and promotion of cooperatives and agricultural organizations. Resilience helps communities and ecosystems to overcome hardships, build endurance to climate stress and find local solutions for sustainable development.

The Argan tree is typically a multipurpose tree that supports income generation, increases resilience and improves climate adaptation, playing a very important role in achieving the three dimensions of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental – at the local level.
