To celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the International Center for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), the Bari Institute of CIHEAM will organize the Third World Conference on the Revitalization of the Mediterranean Diet. The Conference, to be held on 28-30 September 2022 in Bari under the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, will be focused on the theme: "Change of Course Towards More Sustainable and Resilient Food Systems in Mediterranean Countries: the Mediterranean Diet as a Strategic Resource to Accelerate the Agenda 2030 in the Region”.

 

The Conference will address the priority issues identified during the Second World Conference on the Revitalization of the Mediterranean Diet (Palermo 2019) and builds on the orientations of three SFS-MED independent Food Systems Summit Dialogues, organized in 2021.

 

It will serve to boost the operationalization of the SFS-MED Platform, a multi-stakeholder initiative on sustainable food systems in the Mediterranean, jointly initiated as an OPN-SFSP’s affiliated project by CIHEAM, FAO and UfM, with the collaboration of the PRIMA Foundation and its Coordination Desk hosted at the CIHEAM Bari.

 

Aim of the Conference is to trigger a change of route in the current perception of the Mediterranean diet as a sustainable food model, with multiple benefits on health/ nutrition, environment (including biodiversity), economic, social and cultural sustainability, taking in due consideration their contextual differences in Mediterranean countries.
