Rethinking Farming Business Models

At the center of MADRE 2nd TWG were the topics of urban and peri-urban agriculture as a key accelerator for the sustainable deveolpment of metropolises.

The 2nd Transnational Working Group (TWG) and Technical Visits of MADRE project took place in Marseille on 8th and 9th November 2017.

Both the TWG and visits were organised by ANIMA Investment Network, in partnership with AVITEM, in the framework of the First Mediterranean Urban Agriculture Days.

This TWG involved partners and key stakeholders related to farmers’ innovation to discuss three main issues: economic model of urban and peri-urban farming businesses and development of added value activities; collective organisation of farmers to access larger markets and share costs; capacity building and support services for current farmers and newcomers.
