Farming is an essential financial sector in the Mediterranean using almost a quarter of the area’s labor force and has actually revealed considerable development recently.
The Mediterranean deals with a variety of financial and social obstacles. Youth joblessness is high and the area’s fast-growing population will likely reach 360 million by 2030, increasing the need for food, tasks and energy. Water deficiency is another barrier as is the increasing frequency of dry spell and other natural catastrophes triggered by environment modification.
Purchasing sustainable agrifood worth chains and inclusive agribusiness in the Mediterranean area was the focus of a top-level online forum on 21 September 2016 in the Albanian capital, Tirana. The occasion was hosted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the International Center for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), in close partnership with Albania’s Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and Water Administration. http://www.medagri.org/meetings/valuechains2016/.
