In the first stage of the 4CE-MED project, under the work package 1 “Local Multi-Stakeholder Platforms (LMSP)” have been launched with the aim to locally co-design the optimal tailor-made solutions including Camelina Sativa as a cash cover crop for the Mediterranean environments. The local boards will include in each country long-term CA adopters who will bring their expertise and knowledge to the project.
Morocco’ LMSP is already working on advantages and constrains for CA adaptation. Tunisia stakeholders agreed that CA could be an opportunity to diversify crops rotations especially for its low agronomic inputs and the possibility to grow it in marginal area suffering from erosion. In Italy the LMSP, which includes 15 members, (farmers, advisor, regional and national policy makers and frame association representatives) will be open to new members in the coming months. Also, a summary of LMSP’s discussion held in France will be presented including producers, Ministry of Agriculture, cooperatives and user companies’ (main actors for biodiesel) point of view.
