Empty description
Ciheam Bari FTN Press-Review's insight:
Every year, World Water Day draws the world’s attention to key global water issues. World Water Day 2017 focuses on Water and Wastewater. Wastewater can be a valuable resource in the circular economy and an efficient investment in the health of humans and ecosystems. The MENA region is the most water scarce region in the world, with 15 countries in the region suffering from extreme water scarcity (less than 500 m³/year of renewable water per capita per year). Numerous phenomena are further worsening water security in the region, notably climate change and environmental factors, population growth, increased urbanization, ongoing water mismanagement and faulty water service provision systems. Youth has an important role to play in working towards water security and increased water awareness. Young people are involved in innovative water-related projects and research around the Mediterranean, and are key in securing a more sustainable water future in the region. For all of these reasons, the Center for Mediterranean Integration (CMI) is organizing a youth-focused Mediterranean event entitled “Youth Innovating with Wastewater for a Sustainable Mediterranean”, on March 21-22 2017. The aim of this event is to focus on wastewater as an important means for combating water scarcity in the Mediterranean region. In the run-up to this event, the “Mediterranean Water Heroes” youth contest will offer young water activists from around the Mediterranean the opportunity to showcase their innovative work on wastewater and the circular economy. ..Learn more: http://www.demeaumed.eu/index.php/events/85-mediterranean-water-heroes-youth-contest/event_details

SEMINBIO®: Innovative seeder for weed control in cereals (farmknowledge.org)

SEMINBIO®: Innovative seeder for weed control in cereals (farmknowledge.org) | FTN Mediterranean Agriculture & Fisheries | Scoop.it
Trials with the SEMINBIO® seeder in southern and central Italy showed that the seeder’s sowing layout increased wheat yield, irrespective of the weed presence, and decreased weed development, if weeds were present, compared to ordinary seeders.
Practical recommendation
- The SEMINBIO® seeder is still at a prototype stage, but it will soon be commercially manufactured.
- The SEMINBIO® seeder can be combined with the harrow weeder or any other weeding strategy to obtain an augmented weed control effect.

Ciheam Bari FTN Press-Review's insight:
The aim of Mediterranean Innovation Partnership for youth entrepreneurship and technological transfer in the agro-food sector Network meeting (CIHEAM Bari, January 18-19, 2018), is to build up a MIP-Action Plan 2018-20 starting from the needs and the possible solutions expressed by public and private actors of the innovation chain (research centres, extension services, ministries, enterprises, agencies for technology transfer, etc.). This objective maintains continuity with the results of the 2017 MIP survey “Innovation processes in the Mediterranean: Actors, policies and future perspective of innovation chain”, first output of MIP, coordinated by CIHEAM Bari, in close cooperation with all Network members for the collection and analysis of relevant information to describe the innovation scenario in the Mediterranean agro-food sector. On January 18-19, the discussion and sharing of the Action Plan will contribute to identify intervention priorities at regional and local level to favour the development of research results transfer processes and the implementation of innovation in enterprises and start-ups. MIP actions are consistent with the CIHEAM Strategic Agenda CAPMED 2025 Thematic Priority 8 – Youth employment and life-long learning and SDG Agenda 2030. Sharing the Action Plan will create new synergies and make MIP to extend to new Euro-Mediterranean members (public and private organizations), in particular to EU Mediterranean countries, innovation support organizations (ISO) and enterprises clusters. The MIP network aims to build up the Mediterranean Innovation ecosystem by fostering the creation and innovation of agro-food enterprises through the exchange of knowledge, training and cooperation. For this reason, the synergies among public and private actors of the innovation chain in the agro-food sector need to be reinforced. The MIP members: Albania (Ministry of Agriculture), Algeria (Ministry of Agriculture, rural development and fisheries), Egypt (Climate Change Information Centre & Renewable Energy - CCIRE, Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation), Jordan (Ministry of Agriculture), Lebanon(National Council for Scientific Research (CNRS), SWG (SWG Headquarter -Regional Rural Development Standing Working Group in the EEA), Palestine (National Agriculture Research Centre (NARC)- Ministry of Agriculture), Morocco (Ministry of Agriculture, Water Resources and Fisheries) and Tunisia (Institution of Agricultural Research and high Education (IRESA)- Ministry of Agriculture) will be assembled at the meeting together with Puglia Region, PRIMA initiative, ASCAME, IFAD, EMUNI, C.LA.N,A.

New Release: “Areas with Natural Constraints in South – East Europe: Assessment and Policy Recommendations”
The report is an outcome of the project implemented by the Regional Rural Development Standing Working Group in SEE (SWG) and The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ) in cooperation with the International Center for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM).
The main objective of the study is to develop methodology for characterizing, mapping and delineating areas with natural constraints in the SEE countries and to provide policy recommendations to the SEE countries, in line with the EU policies. The study provides policy analysis, evaluation of data availability, elaboration on the institutional setup and assessment of the implications of the ANC approach on regional and national level.

L'iniziativa, che si inserisce nel programma di eventi voluti dal Ministero degli Affari Esteri e della Cooperazione Internazionale per celebrare la Giornata Mondiale dell’Alimentazione 2016, sarà incentrata principalmente sul tema del diritto al cibo e ad un’alimentazione sana e sostenibile, nonché sul tema - più generale - dell’impegno della cooperazione internazionale in questo ambito. Nel corso della giornata interverranno alti rappresentanti istituzionali, fra cui il Ministro Cristiano Maggipinto, Responsabile dell’Ufficio IX del MAECI, Gianni Bonini, Vice-Presidente del CIHEAM, nutrizionisti ed esperti in programmi di sviluppo rurale. Gli interventi saranno introdotti e moderati dal presentatore Antonio Stornaiolo. Saranno inoltre presenti le ultime classi di numerose scuole superiori di Bari e provincia; uno degli obiettivi sarà, infatti, quello di fornire spunti utili ai giovani per intraprendere carriere professionali legate alla cooperazione internazionale e allo sviluppo. “Il Coro del Faro” costituito da circa 60 componenti e diretto dal Maestro Paolo Lepore, accompagnato dalla sua Band Orchestra, assicureranno un intermezzo musicale ispirato alla Giornata (Concerto per la Terra).
