The International Encounters of Practitioners in Mediterranean Agrosilvopastoralism will be held from Tuesday 17th to Friday 20th October 2017 in Montpellier and Florac (France).
These International Encounters are an important occasion for exchanges on key issues for pastoralism at both the French and the Mediterranean scales. They bring together in one event, two cross-cutting experiences:
- the closing seminar of the European LIFE + project: MIL’OUV, on the maintenance of open pastoral landscapes
- the 5th thematic meeting of experts on Mediterranean agro-pastoral Cultural Landscapes based on the management experience of the Causses and Cévennes zone.
This international event will be an opportunity to broaden the discussions to common topics such as markets and value chains, public policies, environmental changes, knowledge transfer or territorial dynamics in favor of agrosilvopastoralism.
It will allow all participants to discover the UNESCO Cultural Property The Causses and the Cévennes, an area emblematic for its Mediterranean agro-pastoral cultural landscape.
