Agricultural Diplomacy

Abraham Accords Initiative for Agriculture & Water Solutions

The Abraham Accords signify a positive turning point in relations between Israel and Muslim-Arab countries. The Accords seek to normalize relations and develop diplomatic and economic ties between Israel and formerly hostile Arab countries. 

Agricultural Diplomacy seeks to share cutting-edge Israel knowledge, technology, and expertise in the agricultural and water sectors through partnerships between stakeholders in Israeli and Arab-Muslim countries. 


The initiative will establish a network of agricultural knowledge centers throughout the countries involved providing training and educational opportunities, promoting investments and business partnerships, support government programs and infrastructure development, and establish joint agricultural research and development programs. Agricultural diplomacy will strengthen the agricultural sectors in all countries and implement practical, desert-tested solutions to the challenges of water, food and nutritional security.

Agricultural Diplomacy Program

Internship for Moroccan University Graduates

In partnership with Moroccan universities, Water 4 Mercy’s Agricultural Diplomacy program is providing opportunities for Moroccan university graduates (‘interns’) to participate in an agronomist training program in Tanzania, Kenya and/or Ethiopia. The program is managed by technical partner CultivAid, an Israeli NGO which leverages world renowned agricultural techniques and Israeli technologies that improve nutrition, enhance crop yields, and increase farmer incomes, while also promoting economic development, fostering diplomatic relationships, and addressing climate change challenges.

The collaboration of Israeli and Moroccan agronomists in the field is an opportunity to support Water 4 Mercy’s development projects in East Africa’s developing countries. It extends beyond conventional internships, offering graduates from the Agronomy and Veterinary Institute in Agadir, Morocco the chance to participate in CultivAid’s agricultural development program. The program emphasizes cooperation between Israel and Morocco, peer interns working together at Water 4 Mercy’s agricultural projects to impact other parts of Africa.


Emphasizing Collaboration

The program places a strong emphasis on teamwork between agricultural professionals from Israel and Morocco. Recent graduates from Israeli and Moroccan universities will come together to work as a unified team to address local agricultural issues.

Positive Impact on Other Nations

The program's objective is not limited to benefiting only Israel and Morocco. It aims to showcase how the alliance between these two Abraham Accords nations can have a ripple effect, positively influencing other developing countries.

Establishing Networks

The program seeks to build and strengthen networks from a variety of professionals and experts from Israel and Morocco, alongside the local communities.

Enhancing Diplomatic and Economic Relations

The collaboration between Israel and Morocco on a professional level can have broader implications for stimulating diplomatic and economic relations.

Addressing Global Challenges
