Welcome to the CIHEAM Montpellier HAL portal

The repository and open access platform for scientific publications from CIHEAM Montpellier's Laboratoire d'Accueil Méditerranéen en Economie et Sciences Sociales.

The portal brings together the scientific output (articles, post-publications, books, book chapters, conference papers, theses, research or expert reports) of the institute's scientific staff.

Its main objective is to facilitate access to the research team's publications, thus creating an open scientific reference base for the community of researchers, lecturers and practitioners of agricultural and food development in the Mediterranean.



International Center for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM)

is an intergovernmental Mediterranean organization working on sustainable agriculture, food and nutrition security, and the development of rural and coastal areas.



CIHEAM Montpellier

  • Sustainability and resilience of Mediterranean agro-ecosystems
  • Insertion of local agri-food chains in global value chains
  • Governance of rural territories in favour of the collaborative and reasoned development of rural areas

  • ABSys (biodiversified agrosystems)
  • CEE-M (economy of the environment)
  • LAGAM (governance, risk, environment and development)
