14th Meeting of the FAO-CIHEAM sub-network on mediterranean pastures and fodder crops

New approaches for grassland research in a context of climatic and socio-economic changes

The Meeting will bring together scientists and specialists from countries of the Mediterranean regions, to present studies and to discuss research strategies and experiences to face current challenges in the management of grasslands. Grassland-based systems are no longer seen as livestock enterprises but as multiple use systems with important consequences for the global environment. They are crucial for the protection of ecosystems goods and services, for tourism and for mitigating climate change.
