About Med-O-Med

MED-O-MED Cultural Landscapes in the Mediterranean and the Middle East, created by the Islamic Culture Foundation (FUNCI) in Madrid, is a Programme for International Development and Cooperation linked to the Spanish National Plan for the Alliance of Civilisations. MED-O-MED was initiated to make up for the shortage of funds available for conserving biodiversity and natural and cultural heritage in the South and East of the Mediterranean basin and in the Middle East.
