A description and an analyse of the rôle of the 2 main permanent networks involved in animal production based on :

- a long time participating observation of their organization and activity

- a comparison between their constitutions and declared objectives with their real activities

The networks : EAAP Mediterranean group and FAO/CIHEAM Networks (sheep and goats, Mediterranean pig, local rabbit breeds, Mediterranean pasture)‏

- The formal support of several international institutions (FAO, CIHEAM, EAAP, etc...)‏

- A voluntary and permanent participation of several hundreds scientist, 60 national institutions, 35 countries

- Many thematic publications and symposiums

- Personal enthusiasm of scientific leaders with global visions but close relations to local roots

  • A real and permanent dynamism of networking in Mediterranean animal production for more than 30 years thanks toIdentified needs to develop consultancy and dialogue in the Mediterranean :

  • -Specific challenges on range land extensive systems (for small ruminants, pigs, cows)‏

  • -A lack of coordination between research, professional organisation, administrations

  • -High geo - strategic stakes: demography and overpopulation near the sea, desertification elsewhere aridity and management of water resources

A gap between the objectives and realisations

Several exposed missions and objectives

- Defining research objectives

- Organising dialogue between the actors

- An activity presented as a connexion between Research and Development

- Consultancy for decision making

- Information for all users

The real activities

- Symposiums, seminars and other meetings, the main chance to meet and to interact collectively;

- Facilitating Cooperative Research projects

- Frequent but sporadic participation of stakeholders

- Non permanent information services and activities,

Why this gap? The recent changes

-Few real evaluation nor real institutional steering with a danger of auto legitimacy.

-More specialized profiles of the scientists

-Less institutional involvement and no significant target financial support

To favour innovation, new forms of organizations between the stakeholders (administration, industry, researchers and technicians) are needed (theoretic background)‏

A DISCUSSION TO OPEN : CAN THESE NETWORKS BE A CONTRIBUTION TO BUILD THESE NEW ORGANISATIONS AND HOW?
