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 6thwebinar 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.  

This event is the sixth of the SFS-MED webinar series, jointly organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), the Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM), and the Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area (PRIMA) within the framework of the SFS-MED Platform, a multi-stakeholder initiative for Sustainable Food Systems in the Mediterranean.
