Fruit Crops Resilience to Climate Change in the Mediterranean Basin

2022 Annual meeting of the project

“Fruit crops resilience to climate change in the Mediterranean Basin”

Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th of October, 2022

Project

The climatic scenario predicted for the Mediterranean areas poses specific challenges for agricultural productions. The vulnerability of agricultural sectors to the modification of agro-climatic conditions depends on both the expected regional climate change and the sectors’ ability to adapt.

For their perennial status, fruit tree crops are particularly exposed to environmental change. Quality and quantity of fruit productions are strongly affected by genotype x environment interactions.

  • WP1 - Phenotyping for traits relevant to resilient fruit systems production

  • WP2 - Genetic dissection and methods for selection of relevant traits for resistance to biotic and abiotic stresses

    WP co-leaders: Veronique Decroocq (INRA-GAFL), Ahmed El Bakkali (INRA-MO)

  • WP3 - Exploitation of local biodiversity and development of pre-breeding materials

    WP co-leaders: Georgios Koubouris (IOSV), Ayzin Kuden (CU)

  • WP4 - Communication, dissemination, training and demonstration

    WP co-leaders: Pavlina Drogoudi (IPB&GR), SihemTellah (ENSA)
