Connectivity, Value Chains and the Green Transition: Promoting Multilateralism and Sustainable Growth across the Shared Mediterranean Space
This report summarises the proceedings of the international conference “Connectivity, Value Chains and the Green Transition: Promoting Multilateralism and Sustainable Growth Across the Shared Mediterranean Space” held in Rabat, Morocco, on 2 November 2022 and co-organised by the Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) and the Policy Center for the New South (PCNS) in the framework of the New-Med Research Network. Convened to discuss the present state of trade and connectivity between North Africa and Europe, the event benefitted from the support of the Embassy of Italy in Morocco and took place in a hybrid format at the PCNS’s Headquarters in Rabat. The conference provided an opportunity to take stock of the impact of Covid-19, the green energy transition and Russia’s war on Ukraine on the potential to engender more sustainable forms of multilateral cooperation, sustainable growth and integration among Mediterranean Basin states.
Session I: Mediterranean Value Chains: From Disruption to New Opportunities for Integration
Session II: Energy and Food Connectivity in the Mediterranean: Harnessing the Green and Digital Transitions to Promote Sustainable Growth and Integration
