A better understanding of the drivers and impacts for forward-looking policies and programmes.
International migration and its impacts on both origin and destination countries have become major concerns in national, regional and international political agendas. Governments, development cooperation agencies, international organisations and NGOs have addressed the stakes of migration in order to formulate possible long-term solutions.
In such context, the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the European University Institute (EUI) – Global Governance Programme and the Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) are willing to set up a comprehensive framework for rural migrations in the Mediterranean from the perspective of rural and agricultural development.
Jointly organised by the CIHEAM, FAO, UfMS and EUI – Global Governance Programme, the “Forum on Agriculture, Rural Development and Migration in the Mediterranean: a better understanding of the drivers and impacts for forward-looking policies and programmes” will take place on 29 May 2018 – from 9.30 am to 5.00 pm at FAO Headquarters.
