All these activities are part of the project "Mediterranean Bee Hubs in support for sustainable economic prosperity in deprived rural areas" (MedBEESinessHubs), co-financed by the European Union ENI CBC MED Programme with the duration of  24 -months.

With this initiative, it is intended to start precisely from the beekeeping sector to offer the Mediterranean rural economies an opportunity for redevelopment, linking the clusters of five countries - Cyprus, Egypt, Lebanon, Palestine and Italy.

The latter in particular involves Sardinia through the Chamber of Arab – Italian Cooperation Chamber, which has chosen the island itself as the geographical focus area of this important project.
