The Mediterranean has an increasingly important geopolitical dimension as a meeting point between three continents - Europe, Asia and Africa - with major differences in terms of political, economic and social models. Within this framework, CIHEAM (International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies) has become a reference institution in the agrifood and fisheries development of its member countries through training, research, cooperation projects and political dialogue activities.
CIHEAM Zaragoza, one of the four Institutes of the organization, since its creation in 1969 has contributed to the capacity building of participants through its activities. Our commitment extends to all social demands, both external and internal. That is why, since 2019, we have been working to fulfil our obligations in terms of equality and gender perspective together with the rest of the Institutes and the CIHEAM General Secretariat. This commitment has led to the Institute’s Gender Equality Plan (GEP).
