We seek collaboration as project partners in Topics 2.2.2 and 2.3.2 to complement and expand the work we are already undertaking in Lemnos island under the Terra Lemnia project (https://terra-lemnia.net/) which aims to conserve the sustainable, traditional agro-pastoral practices of the island and to demonstrate their valuable role in biodiversity conservation and modern day green development, through research and on the ground actions, in collaboration with Lemnian organisations and producers.
DESCRIPTION OF YOUR ORGANISATION:
MedINA was legally established in September 2003 as a non-profit organization, based in Athens, Greece. Its main priority areas are traditional practices that benefit biodiversity and traditional ecological knowledge, cultural values of wetlands, landscapes and sacred natural sites as well as the development of integrated approaches for the management of natural and cultural heritage. Its geographical scope is mainly the Mediterranean region and its main fields of action are the design and implementation of projects and research activities, the dissemination of knowledge through publications, communication activities, conferences and workshops, informing policy and building partnerships with multi-disciplinary stakeholders.

The Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area will devise new R&I approaches to improve water availability and sustainable agriculture production in a region heavily distressed by climate change, urbanisation and population growth
