Partnership between Wikifarmer and PRIMA
Wikifarmer is always interested in building partnerships with organizations, universities, institutions, and projects worldwide. Our main goal is to democratize agriculture; we believe networking can help us achieve this. Wikifarmer and PRIMA are working together to promote several EU agrifood projects.
The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area (PRIMA) is an initiative launched by 19 Euro-Mediterranean Countries, including 11 EU States (Croatia,
Cyprus, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain) and 8 non-EU countries (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Tunisia and Turkey) to participate in an EU joint research and innovation programme. In the legal framework of Article 185 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFUE) this ambitious initiative is set up to build research and innovation capacities and to develop knowledge and common innovative solutions for water management and agro-food systems on both shores of the Mediterranean inspired by principles of co-ownership, mutual interest and shared benefits across the Mediterranean basin. PRIMA works on four thematic areas namely
Management of water: Integrated and sustainable management of water for arid and semi-arid Mediterranean areas
Farming Systems: Sustainable farming systems under Mediterranean environmental constraints
Agro-Food Value Chain: Sustainable Mediterranean agro-food value chain for regional and local development and WEFE Nexus: Interlinkage between water, energy, food and ecosystems in the Mediterranean.
