OUR IDENTITY 

We believe in a UNITED MEDITERRANEAN where the sustainable development of agriculture, food security and territorial cohesion are the seeds of social stability and inclusive growth.

We promote MULTILATERAL COOPERATION through specialised training, networked research, scientific diplomacy and political partnerships.

We contribute to REGIONAL STABILITY, food and nutrition security, health of populations, the protection of the environment and increased access to the job market of youth.

We strongly believe in INTERCULTURAL DIALOGUE and DIVERSITY. Several nationalities and religions coexist within the CIHEAM.

We believe in KNOWLEDGE SHARING and the enhancement of links between knowledge and development needs.

We promote POLITICAL DIALOGUE through the organisation of meetings of the Agricultural Ministries of our member States.

We develop our actions within an ACCOUNTABILITY framework and implement them through a result-based management approach.

The paper aims to present changes and current dynamics of mountainous pastoral systems in Southern Albania (Korca region) and to identify origin-based quality products as a strategy for sustainable rural development. According to the historical data (available or reconstructed through interviews), rapid and unregulated changes in mountainous productive systems within the post-communism transition threaten local natural resources and cultural landscapes.

Mediterranean ecosystems have traditionally developed through human intervention. Especially the ones located near urban areas, have been imposed to various changes resulting from restoration practices such as reforestation, land use change, fire etc. effecting vegetation structure and diversity. The aim of this paper was to study the effects of various human-caused perturbations on plant cover and species diversity and composition in suburban Mediterranean ecosystems. The research was conducted in the “Sheikh Sou” suburban park of Thessaloniki, North Greece.

In Cantabrian Mountains (N Spain), summer pastures are mostly utilized for beef cattle production. This work aimed to study cow and calf performance of two local breeds, Asturiana de los Valles (AV) and Asturiana de la Montaña (AM), grazing at different pasture mixtures from June to October. Data were recorded from 1995 to 2013 in a high mountain area, which was divided in two plots of 30 ha each: one with 70 per cent grassland and 30 per cent Calluna-heathland cover (C30), and another with 30 per cent grassland and 70 per cent heathland cover (C70).
