MEDSNAIL: sustainable networks for agro-food innovation leading in the Mediterranean

​​ESDU ends 2019 by collaborating in the implementation of MedSNAIL (Sustainable Networks for Agro-food Innovation Leading in the Mediterranean). The project will address issues in the Mediterranean basin countries: local varieties, rural poverty (mostly affecting women), limited investment capacity of rural entrepreneurs, and lack of training on socio-environmental sustainability, business planning, and marketing strategies. 

The project will accomplish its goals by fostering the valorization and development of small-scale traditional agro-food value chains and by combining enhancement of market potentialities and socio-environmental sustainability. Project activities are intended to build on the well-established experience, principles, and methods of SlowFood, an international grassroots organization that promotes traditional foods and has a strong focus on biodiversity preservation.

The European Union, under the European Neighborhood Instrument Cross-border Cooperation in the Mediterranean (ENI CBC MED) Program, funded MedSNAIL with a total budget of €2,028,807.74.​
