Mediterranean network

Capitalisation and activation of the Mediterranean dairy clusters’ network.

Coordinated by CIHEAM-IAMM


The activities implemented and their results will be tackled during regional restitution workshops in order to share the work achieved on each pilot territory and to discuss local action plans and regional strategies. All partners will meet with international experts on these occasions, in view of the emergence of a Mediterranean network of dairy clusters to facilitate exchanges on best practices, know-how and technological and organisational innovations.
Mediterranean Seminar in Lebanon
In order to strengthen the skills of local support organisations of the dairy chain (chambers of commerce, agropoles, employers’ federation, groups of producers, regional authorities etc.), local authorities and private sector, three Mediterranean capacity building seminars will be held. The themes addressed will be the distinctive origin and quality signs and standards of food quality; mechanisms supporting innovation and territorial development; public policies supporting the food chains and the tools for a better access to strategic information. As true moments of exchanges between the territories, the seminars aim at disseminating common visions and practices at the Mediterranean level.
Missions of awareness raising and technical assistance to local and national authorities of Lebanon, Italy, Greece, Egypt and Tunisia will be the opportunity to hold working meetings with local stakeholders. The objective is to highlight the potential of typical dairy products in terms of job creation, contribution to the balance of payments (exports), competitiveness (capture of added value), conservation of traditional know-how and food health. The barriers identified within local diagnosis will be discussed as well. These meetings will result in the publication of white papers and media campaigns to promote the integration and dissemination of the project results at the level of agricultural and food-processing policies (changes in regulations).
