  5. 5. 1 W ater Ressources in M orocco Soil Erosion Multiple causes:  Natural factors: weakness of vegetable cover, Climatic aggressiveness, steeply sloping relief;  Human factors : Overgrazing, deforestation, improper agricultural practices. Heavy consequences: 11 Million ha threatened by water erosion;  Soil loss (500 t/Km2/year in the Atlas and more than 5,000t/Km2/year in Rif);  Diminution of the soil productivity;  Loss of dams water storage capacity by more than 75 Million m3/year; Loss of 10% in capacity of dam reservoirs,  Water quality deterioration. 1500 1400 Perte en retenues de barrages (millions m3) 1000 895 475 500 155 0 5 1950 50 1960 1970 1980 1990 2000
