FAO, CIHEAM, UfM and PRIMA are organising the webinar “WEFE Nexus to increase food systems’ resilience to climate change and conflict’s cascading effects in the MED region“. It will take place online (Zoom Platform) on 6th July 2022 from 09:00 to 10:30 CET,
As climate change is affecting the MED region significantly more than the world average, endangering the sustainability provision of water, energy, food and ecosystem services, the holistic, integrated and transversal approach to resource management • represented by the WEFE Nexus is pivotal to a successful transition to a green economy • and sustainable development.
Increasing food insecurity in the region, further aggravated in the post-COVID-19 context and by the cascading impacts of the recent Ukrainian war, presents a timely need • and opportunity to showcase solutions with tangible impact on the sustainability of food • systems and concrete opportunities for securing food supplies, preventing a looming • food crisis
The webinar will aim to address a key question: how could the application of the WEFE nexus influence food systems transformation in the Mediterranean, towards increased resilience to climate change and conflicts?
