NEW AGROECOLOGICAL APPROACH FOR SOIL FERTILITY AND BIODIVERSITY RESTORATION TO IMPROVE ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL RESILIENCE OF MEDITERRANEAN FARMING SYSTEMS
The AgrEcoMed project, conceived on the basis of the main principles on which the agroecological transition is based, aims to push the farmers of the Mediterranean Region to adopt new crop systems with greater biodiversity and new farming practices and technologies. The on-going and final results of the project will be spread and made available at local, national and international level.
The project will adopt a place-based and user-centred co-creation approach, engaging groups of farmers and other relevant actors of the local food supply chain in jointly exploring and developing innovative solutions, arrangements and coordination systems adapted to local agro-environmental, socio-economic and territorial context. Research activities will be integrated into real-life settings, creating a co-learning and co-designing environment.
