MED Fora
Parco dei Principi Hotel, Rome


Climate change is severely affecting agricultural productivity, food production and natural resource availability, jeopardizing food systems and rural livelihoods in many countries. The Forum seeks to reach a common understanding on the nexus between food security and climate change throughout the Mediterranean considering the social, economic and environmental dimensions of sustainability.

• What are the complex and intertwined relations between the environment and food systems?
• How do development cooperation actors tackle the challenge of climate change while boosting rural and agricultural development?
