Romanian MAPs join the forces for more sustainable food systems


On 27-29 July, at the initiative of SHERPA project lead in Romania – Institute of Agricultural Economics from Romanian Academy, a face-to-face workshop on the topic of “Sustainable agri-food systems” was held in Cluj.

The event was jointly supported by Romanian SHERPA members through their organizations: “Gh. Zane” Institute for Economic and Social Research, Romanian Academy, Iasi Branch; University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Cluj-Napoca; AgroTransilvania Cluster, Rural Development Research Platform, Iași; Silvania.bio.

The workshop’ topic was designed as a discussion forum about SHERPA’s proposals, especially aimed at project recommended actions for Prosperous Rural Areas.

The workshop brought together 21 members of the three Romanian MAPs and their guests, giving the opportunity for direct interactions and exchange of ideas and good practices, including other initiatives targeting the topic of value chains’ sustainability. The event also offered an excellent opportunity for strengthening the relations between the three regional MAPs and their synergic actions in a common effort for future joint initiatives and projects.

In this regard, the exemplification of good practices about the sustainability of agro-food chains based upon concrete cases (green, ecological, short), represented a strong added value for participants, both practitioners and academics.
