Climate change and weather-related disasters are negatively impacting Morocco's greenhouse vegetable exports, particularly tomatoes, which have seen a significant drop. Despite these challenges, the country managed to increase its sweet pepper exports by 9% between July and November 2023. Morocco, the world's third-largest tomato exporter in 2022, is struggling to maintain its export levels due to ongoing droughts and water shortages. The European Union continues to be the primary buyer of Moroccan vegetables, accounting for approximately 70% of total exports.
