Through its partnerships, CIHEAM has participated in the development of networks and information dialogue platforms. These platforms make it possible to exchange knowledge on various topics, to inform partners and the general public about the actions undertaken, and to establish cooperation with the stakeholders concerned.
The SFS-MED platform, supported by the FAO, the Union for the Mediterranean, PRIMA and CIHEAM, is a forum for dialogue and collaboration that aims to leverage collaboration between countries and stakeholders to advance the sustainable transformation of agrifood systems in the Mediterranean region.
Created at the initiative of CIHEAM, the MED-Amin network aims to encourage cooperation and the sharing of experience between national agricultural market information systems, starting with cereal markets that are strategic for food security in the Mediterranean.
GID and CIHEAM share similar objectives for the development of Mediterranean and African countries and societies in the fields of agriculture, education, protection of natural resources and the environment, water, food and nutrition, and health. This platform has been created to share their joint activities, work and areas of study of common interest.
Feed the knowledge community is a platform that hosts and inspires initiatives that have brought change to a community in the field of sustainable food systems. It grants access to acquired knowledge and exchange between the various players. The platform aims to reach out to young people and encourage their employability.
GENMEDA is a network of seed banks and centres for the conservation of genetic resources of Mediterranean flora which share a common floristic region, a geographical area with a similar landscape and a common set of problems concerning disturbances to the natural environment, of which the CIHEAM is a member through the Chania Institute.
MOAN is a network of experts on Mediterranean organic agriculture whose aim is to promote organic agriculture in Mediterranean countries through promotional activities, training, research and data collection on the state of the sector in the Mediterranean basin.
The Mediterranean Innovation Partnership (MIP) is a network for youth entrepreneurship and technology transfer in the agri-food sector coordinated by the Bari Institute.
GEMAISA is a project set up by the Bari Institute that aims to improve rural women's livelihoods in six Mediterranean countries by increasing women's participation and agency in selected local agri-food value chains and by helping to strengthen the capacity of ministries of agriculture to mainstream gender issues and promote women's empowerment in their policies, strategies and programmes.
