Zero waste in the Mediterranean. Natural Ressources, Food and Knowledge
Première édition

Agriculture and food security are two major global challenges. Situated at the heart of the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), they raise several strategic issues both for countries and for international cooperation. "Produce more and better" is the recommendation to help address the challenges related to population growth, changing consumption patterns and scarcity of natural and financial production resources. In this context, the reduction of agricultural losses and food waste has become a priority.

The Mediterranean region is particularly concerned by these dynamics, which affect human security, inclusive economic and social development and adaptation to climate change. The issue of waste has to be understood not only from the perspective of responsible management of natural resources and of production and consumption of food, but also of enhancement of knowledge and knowhow.

Mediterra 2016 proposes an integrated, innovative and forward-looking approach to the issues of triple waste reduction (of natural resources, food and knowledge). This new edition offers a collection of shared expertise and local experiences in the Mediterranean region. It focuses on providing solutions for action, and is aimed at policy-makers, development operators, professionals and researchers.

This publication is co-edited by the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM) and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), two international organizations working within the framework of a strategic partnership for sustainable
development in the Mediterranean.
