Green light in a green environment fir the start of ENI CBC MED’s LIVINGAGRO project whose launching event took place on 26-27 November in Cagliari, Italy.

The various speakers during the kick-off meeting underlined the importance of international cooperation, exchange of good practices between institutions, organizations and private actors of the Mediterranean area in order to jointly address common important challenges such as technology transfer, innovation, research and Public- Private Partnership in agro-forestry, which concretely produce measurable results as well as real benefits for territories, stakeholders involved and local communities.

The combination of agriculture and forestry in the Mediterranean is deeply rooted in a culture of tradition and niche production but fails nowadays to structure its knowledge to achieve an integrated system of good practices for the sustainability of production, the protection of the biodiversity of distinct ecosystems, the transfer of innovation and the increase in profitability for the territories/actors involved. Therefore, LIVINGAGRO (Cross Border Living Laboratories for Agroforestry) will tackle these issues using an Open Innovation approach, based on the setting-up of two Living Laboratories making possible the co-creation of the economic and social values and the interactions between supply and demand, eliminating geographical and cultural barriers. The beneficiary countries are: Italy, Jordan, Lebanon and Greece.
