Equator Initiative Case Study – Amsing Association

Amsing Association was established by the villagers of Elmoudaa – an Amazirght (Berber) community located in the High Atlas Mountains – to address economic isolation, a lack of social services, and harsh climatic conditions. The association has successfully reintroduced a traditional land management practice called ‘azzayn’ which bans herders from grazing their livestock on protected lands. The reintroduction of this regulatory system has allowed native grasses and shrubs to thrive, reduced soil erosion, and helped prevent flooding.
