Resources, Strategies and Potentialities for Food System Sustainability in the Mediterranean Area
Noelia Betoret and Ester Betoret’s fabulous research work offers, like few others, the opportunity to be part of our common space of gathering, peace and wisdom.
The book is structured in three parts;
– Crops, land and water use
– Strategies in the face of climate change
– Potentialities of the Mediterranean area
It implicitly offers a structure of analysis analogous to “past, present and future” that perfectly guides any reader. One of the various greatnesses of this book that the reader now has in his hands, or on his screen, is that it allows a reading of high scientific level, but at the same time it has taken care of an approach of such an interesting area of knowledge to people who are not experts in these issues.
