MED-GOLD Final Showcase Event
March 29, 2022 @ 10:00 am - March 30, 2022 @ 4:00 pm| Free
The MED-GOLD project is hosting its final showcase event online on 29-30 March 2022.
This two-day event will provide an insight into:
- the lessons learned during the project
- upscaling possibilities
- the relevance of climate services such as those developed in MED-GOLD for policy and society
The event will present the co-production approach taken in the project to create a useful and usable climate service tool for the agrifood sector, and end-user success stories from early adopters of the pilot services coming from three sectors: grape/wine (SOGRAPE), olive/olive oil (Dcoop), and durum wheat/pasta (Barilla).
We will also discuss the legacy of the MED-GOLD project by exploring the societal value and replicability to other crops (such as coffee) and other regions beyond the ones targeted in the project.
Interactive approaches will allow attendees to better understand the value of climate services for decision making and how to deal with the uncertainty associated with such services.
Ultimately, this event will enable attendees from different communities in the value chain, including producers, trade, consumers and policymakers, to share and exchange ideas regarding the potential to apply and use MED-GOLD pilot services in their own cross-sectoral decision-making contexts. This cross-fertilisation among the different sectors will be conducive to ideas that disrupt the status quo for food systems that are sustainable across the triple bottom line (i.e. environmental, economic and social).
Day 1 (29 March)
We will focus on the success story from the MED-GOLD experience: what the scientific and industrial partners have gained from participating in the project, and how they resolved problems that emerged during the process of co-developing climate services.
Day 2 (30 March)
We will discuss the contribution of MED-GOLD to society in general, working towards a more resilient society but also contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals. The replicability and the future perspectives of the MED-GOLD climate services will also be discussed, including the potential use of the services for the coffee sector.
During the event, attendees will have the opportunity to visit virtual stands and view posters, videos, user guides and other material developed in MED-GOLD, and engage in discussions with the presenters and other project participants.
The official language of the event will be English.
