Join the meeting on Biological Diversity, Ecosystem Restoration and Food Systems organised by UfM and UNDP !

In the framework of the UN Biodiversity and Climate Change Conferences, the UN Decade for Ecosystem Restoration and the UN Food Systems Summit; the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) jointly organise a side-event that will take place on 4 October 2021, from 16:30 to 17:45 in a hybrid format from Cairo (Egypt) in presence and online.

It will aim at highlighting and promoting the high-level political and operational efforts towards conservation of biological diversity and ecosystem restoration, with a special focus on food systems, taking into account the wider shift towards green, blue, circular economy at Euro-Mediterranean level.

The Interreg MED JS coordinator, Mr Curzio Cervelli, will talk about the importance of the environmental dimension in the 21-27 Interreg Euro-MED Programme and the necessity of a wider cooperation, firstly between programmes and strategies, but also through North-South relations between the two shores of the Mediterranean.
