Designing sustainable land/farming system for the adaptation of Mediterranean agriculture under global changes: integrated assessment from field/farm to regional scales.
This seminar was organized by IAM.M in its campus. It gathered 31 participants from 10 different countries involved in projects on farming systems in Europe (“Seamless”) and in the Mediterranean: “Biosight” (CIHEAM-IAMM and IFPRI), the CGIAR CRP-Dryland Systems, the project "Scenarios for sustainable futures of Mediterranean agriculture based on ecosystem services supply" funded by the LABEX OT-MED, OPERAs and the project "landscape trajectories, drivers and impacts" carried out by the University of Evora in Portugal. Although these projects are very different in their scales of approach, they all converge to the analysis of levers for the sustainable intensification of Mediterranean agriculture. The cooperation between these projects will allow to exchange results and to consider a joint submission to next calls for research on mediterranean agriculture and food systems.
output expectation was to stimulate exchange and networking among different
existing and future projects around the Mediterranean region, starting from
the common statement that an integration of different spatial and temporal scales
is needed to design sustainable cropping-farming systems and propose and assess
future scenarios of land system occupation and management. The
cooperation between these projects will allow to exchange results and to consider
joint bids in a future tender.
