UNICAM is an Erasmus+ project focused on the development of master programs in sustainable agriculture (MSA) made up of eight universities from Cambodia, Belgium, France, Italy and Spain.

The main objective of this event is to share the knowledge and agree on the steps needed to encourage more and more sustainable agriculture production.

As we know there is undeniable evidence that agriculture plays and important role on global change. To that is added the large carbon footprint that food production and distribution leaves behind. Likewise, global change and more specifically the uncertainty deriving from climate change poses a threat to agriculture as it is understood today. This is truly a pressing matter which demands more and more a move to sustainable agriculture worldwide.

It is worth mentioning that if we move to agricultural practices that minimize the use of pesticides the benefits will not be only for human and environmental health, but it will also increase the commercial value of the agricultural goods.
