The aim of the meeting is to identify, compare and create synergies between 4PRIMA member countries R&I programmes in water and food systems and programmes/initiatives promoted by regional, EU and international donors in the Mediterranean region.
Therefore, besides the partners of 4PRIMA, the event is addressed to representatives of institutions or donors having relevant programmes/initiatives in the region. They will be asked to present their on-going and upcoming activities in order to see whether there is a potential for cooperation with 4PRIMA countries joint programming.
Several international and EU bodies have already confirmed their participation (UfM, UNIDO, FAO, ICARDA, Arab Water Council, World Bank, DG RTD, DG DEVCO).
The participation of 4PRIMA partners to the event would bring an outstanding added value to the discussion. The event will be followed by an internal meeting of 4PRIMA Consortium (on the same day).
