Challenges and Priorities

Everywhere in the world, food and water are fundamental challenges. In the Mediterranean Area, the climate context and demographic trends are strongly increasing the pressures on the capabilities of the societies to provide affordable food and good quality water to their inhabitants. In this context PRIMA is addressing the Mediterranean food systems and water resources challenges taking into account the characteristics and criticalities of the current situation and the necessity to foresee adaptation to climate change in the future.

Three big Challenges:

  1. Sustainable management of water for arid and semi-arid Mediterranean areas
  2. Sustainable farming systems under Mediterranean environmental constraints
  3. Mediterranean food value chain for regional and local development

Several priorities and target activities are addresses by PRIMA for each challenge.
