Medina, in brief

How to ensure quantitative and qualitative food security in the Mediterranean countries? What would be the impacts on the organization of food systems, from the distribution up to the production sector? How to keep a place for locally produced traditional Mediterranean foods in a context of strong urbanization and globalization of the agro-food trade?

Ten partners, from French, Tunisian and international institutions and organizations, with complementary expertises in nutrition, food sciences, agronomy and economics, work together in the Medina project to shed new light on these questions. The ambition of the project is to propose tracks for sustainable solutions, based on scenarios, to optimize the contribution of food systems to public health objectives.
