SFS-MED Webinar: Green growth: Strategies and Actions to shift towards Sustainable Food Systems in the Mediterranean region
If you want to hear about collaborative approaches to address challenges and gaps in transferring knowledge and research to practical applications to improve the sustainability of agrifood systems, register here!
The SFS-MED webinar n. 6 will aim to address some key questions:
- What are the most effective and feasible strategies, incentives and technological solutions for greening agrifood systems in the Mediterranean region, and how can policymakers, researchers, and practitioners work together to implement them?
- How can stakeholders collaborate to address the challenges and gaps in knowledge, research, and innovation for sustainable agrifood systems in the Mediterranean?
Addressing sustainability challenges in the Mediterranean agrifood systems is vital for long-term food security, environmental protection, and socio-economic development. With water scarcity, land degradation, and climate impacts affecting food production, a shift towards sustainable practices is urgent. Transitioning to sustainable agrifood systems requires a comprehensive approach, including shifting towards sustainable agriculture, post-harvest management, food processing, and waste management.
The 6th webinar led by the SFS-MED Platform is expected to raise awareness and promote dialogue on the challenges and opportunities in greening agrifood systems in the Mediterranean region. The webinar will also provide participants with practical examples of sustainable food production and consumption practices, and discuss the role of innovative technologies, forward-thinking policies and targeted finance in advancing green growth in the region. The webinar will also facilitate the exchange of ideas and experiences among participants and foster opportunities for collaboration and partnerships among the SFS-MED platform members and other stakeholders.
