Dialogue 3: Way forward for regional collaboration
This third dialogue co-convened by the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM), the One Planet Network’s Sustainable Food Systems Programme (OPN-SFSP) and the Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area (PRIMA) Foundation is the prosecution of the two other Independent Dialogues on “Pathways for the future of sustainable food systems in the Mediterranean” held in April and June 2021. The outcomes of these dialogues and their key messages were synthesised in this executive brief (English, French, Arabic).
Following the Dialogues, FAO, CIHEAM and UfM conducted a stocktaking exercise of national and independent dialogues that took place in the Mediterranean region, as a starting point to reflect on the ongoing efforts by countries and stakeholders in the preparation and follow-up to the UN Food Systems Summit. More specifically, the stocktake will allow to highlight the main issues and national pathways identified within the UNFSS process across the Mediterranean region, identifying common patterns, trends, and opportunities specific to the Mediterranean context that can help build strong regional collaboration. The stocktake combines research and an in-depth desk review and analysis of the official feedback forms of 24 FSSDs that took place in the Mediterranean region, as well as National Pathways, and the statements delivered by Member States during the Pre-Summit, the UNFSS and other related events. It is not meant to represent the position or opinions of any of this dialogue’s Convenors.
This third dialogue is designed to:
- take stock of regional and national efforts as a follow-up to the UNFSS;
- exchange on the way forward and opportunities for collaboration at national and regional level.

The event will be live-streamed publicly on FAO website.
