To cope with the effects of global change, agro-ecosystems in the Mediterranean basin require a significant shift from current agricultural and agroforestry uses, mainly based on monoculture, towards longer-term sustainable systems. This transition needs to strengthen the resilience of farmers and rural communities, while restoring traditional uses and incorporating innovative activities. 

Using a participatory approach in selected Mediterranean regions, TRANSITION will work to provide a solid understanding of the barriers to wider implementation of new agricultural practices in agroforestry and mixed farming systems, provide tools for evidence-based decision-making and develop a basin-level roadmap for wider adoption.
