On January 24th and 25th, Montpellier will host MADRE TWG on Territorial Innovation.

Hosted by CIHEAM-IAMM, the partners of MADRE will gather in Montpellier to discuss about land-use planning to advantage urban and peri-urban agriculture, and the metropolitan food system.

It will also be an occasion to discuss about the future trends on MPA, and of the impact of the new technologies implemented for intensive agriculture on smaller holdings surrounding metropolises.

As usual, the partners will visit some good practices of the region: Ferme de l'Herbiculture in Montagnac; Ultriamarine shellfish farm in Marseillane; and Condamine Urban Collective Farm.
