CEMAS has published the book “Resources, Strategies and Potentialities for Food System Sustainability in the Mediterranean Area”. The book aims to describe and analyse the characteristics of Mediterranean food systems, focusing on sustainability across all the food chain, from agriculture to fork. The book pretends to detect the strengths and weaknesses of the food system by analyzing globally three basic aspects: the resources available at different Mediterranean areas in terms of crops, land and water use; the strategies that can be followed to fight the climate change; and the potentialities of the Mediterranean area that can make the difference and facilitate the transition to a sustainable food system. The book is the collaborative work of renowned specialists from different parts of the Mediterranean and was coordinated by the researchers Noelia Betoret and Ester Betoret.
