The CIHEAM-IAMM in Montpellier (France), one of four Mediterranean agronomic institutes of the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies, is working on a project proposal on “The governance of food security as a new driver for innovative and sustainable territorial economies” (Interreg Europe, 2nd call, Objective 4.2: Improving resource efficient economy policies).
The project idea is to take food security as a global cross-cutting concern and to see how this issue can drive innovation and economic and social development of the territories in the non agricultural sectors of the economy. That is the originality but also the challenge of this proposal!
The consortium is already composed by partners from Italy, Spain, France, Denmark and Poland. In order to finalize it, CIHEAM-IAMM is looking for partners from Belgium, The Netherlands and Sweden which represent regional authorities in order to have a quite direct link between the project of setting up a regional cross-cutting governance for food security and the execution of the Regional and Social development programmes.
