Youssef Bencharki, Pierre Rasmont, Oumayma Ihsane, Moulay Chrif Smaili, Axel Ssymank, Stefanie Christmann. (14/11/2023). Conservation of pollinator diversity for enhanced climate change resilience. Beirut, Lebanon: International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA).
This brochure is for large-scale farmers producing in monocultures. We show fields and field results from three regions with different climate: Settat (semi-arid, 90% of arable land is covered with cereals), Sidi Slimane (sub-humid, fruits and vegetables) and Ksar El-Kebir (mediterranean climate, producing mainly melon and sugarcane). The three regions are rich in bee fauna, but the intensive agriculture might reduce their diversity and abundance hampering agriculture in the near future.
