It’s official! AgroForMed – a non-profit association that aims to develop agroforestry in the Mediterranean – has now been launched. The association’s activity is tridimensional:

  1. SCALE UP by developing agroforestry projects in the Mediterranean.
  2. SCALE OUT by collecting and disseminating agroforestry best practices in the Mediterranean.
  3. SCALE DEEP by creating a network of actors in the Mediterranean agroforestry sector.

Its ambition for 2024: Organize the very first “Mediterranean Agroforestry Conference”!

AgroForMed’s actions are guided by five core values:

  • Participative – Fostering the common and supporting the collective.
  • Farmer-led – Putting farmers at the core of development.
  • Inclusive – Working together with all stakeholders. 
  • Integrated – Combining ecological, social, and economic dimensions to ensure sustainability.
  • Holistic – Applying system thinking in everything AgroForMed does.
