One of the main targets of the 4CE-MED (Camelina: a Cash Cover Crop Enhancing water and soil conservation in MEDiterranean dry-farming systems) project is to engage local stakeholders in each of the seven participating countries (Italy, Greece, Spain, France, Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia). To achieve this goal local multi-stakeholder platforms (LMSPs) have been created since the start of the 4CE-MED project (1st May 2020). In Italy the first consultation of the local multi-stakeholder platform took place online in July 2020. On the first consultation the Italian LMSP included about 20 people from different regions and covering different expertise, i.e. farmers, farmer advisors and consultants, contractors, regional and national policy makers, representatives of different farmer organizations and researchers from UNIBO and CREA, the two Italian partners of 4CE-MED. The platform was balanced also for gender including both male and female stakeholders. The discussion within the LMSP was very lively and fruitful, all the participants were interested on both conservation agriculture and the new oilseed cash cover crop c,amelina. Despite the still limited adoption of conservation agriculture in Italy it emerged the high potential of this technique to improve soil and water quality, and the possible inclusion of camelina, especially in double cropping systems with typical summer crops was highly welcome by the Italian stakeholders. The future organization of field days in the trials established by UNIBO will represent an interesting opportunity for stakeholders to personally understand the feasibility of this new crop under conservation agriculture.
