Foundation for the Sustainable development of the Mediterranean (MEDES Foundation) is a non-profit organization, aiming to promote activities on sustainable development and management of Mediterranean areas highly exposed to desertification. People involved in the Foundation have a strong background in agricultural economics and policy; social sciences, natural resources management and cultural and natural sites promotion. MEDES Foundation has highly-regarded expertise in a number of areas including: i) using a range of technologies for communication and dissemination of project results and best practice guidelines for decision-makers, ii) translating science to non-scieintific language, and iii) the use of strategic indicators and benchmarks for assessing and monitoring. The MEDES Foundation team includes the designer and editor of two web-base information systems: the Harmonised Information System for the EU-funded DESIRE Integrated Project, and the LEDDRIS Land and Ecosystem Degradation and Desertification Response Information System for the EU-funded LEDDRA project.
