The SCALA-MEDI project will optimise the sustainable use and conservation of local genetic resources from the Mediterranean region, focusing on adaptation to climatic conditions and consumer preferences.
The expertise and data from previous EU projects will be extended to the genetic and epigenetic characterisation of local resources and their adaptation to different production environments in three North African countries, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco.
Tools and strategies will be developed to improve local breeds for sustainable production. Application of these tools will be demonstrated to farmers in diverse Mediterranean production systems.
SCALA-MEDI responds to PRIMA Call - Section 1 - Farming Systems 2020 - Topic 1.2.1 - Sub-topic A, by addressing sustainable breeding and valuation of local populations of the two most important livestock species for the Southern Mediterranean area: Sheep and Chicken
