Economic recovery is an immediate challenge, as well as knowing what new medium and long-term scenarios the pandemic will bring. There is a high degree of uncertainty surrounding these future perspectives and scenarios as a result of the pandemic exceptionality and the consideration of social, health, economic, environmental factors, among others, is therefore necessary.
The “Mediterranean transport and logistics in a post-COVID 19 era: prospects and opportunities” initiative, led by Centre for Western Mediterranean Transportation Studies (CETMO) and European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) was created as an ambitious project, in order to generate and discuss knowledge, with the aim of identifying these scenarios in the sectors of transport and logistics in the Mediterranean area.
More specifically, the initiative “Mediterranean transport and logistics in the post-COVID-19 era: Perspectives and opportunities” calls upon experts from a range of professional backgrounds, different Mediterranean countries, and regional and international institutions to discuss possible post-Covid-19 scenarios for the Transport and Logistics Sector in the Mediterranean, by way of thematic articles. In gathering multiple insights and critical perspectives, the initiative is aimed at considering different approaches, and involving different concerned actors, in the promotion of future regional strategies and cooperation opportunities.
In conclusion, this initiative is conceived as a tool to support the Mediterranean transport and logistics sector in order to facilitate a mid- and long-term adaptation to the post-COVID-19 era, from the construction of a regional collective intelligence adapted to the new reality, which is fruit of the collaboration between the experts of the region.
The aim is to build a regional collective knowledge, through short articles written by experts and reference organizations, that allows us to become active players in building the future of the region. These contributions and their discussion will allow us to reflect on and describe the scenarios, define priorities, and identify opportunities for cooperation, in order to bring them to fruition.
In conclusion, the main objectives of the “Mediterranean transport and logistics in a post-COVID 19 era: prospects and opportunities” are as follows:
- To contribute to the building of a collective intelligence on the post-COVID-19 scenario for the transport and logistics sector in the Mediterranean, as well as the opportunities that it may generate.
- To visualise a Mediterranean reality in the adaptation to the post-COVID-19 scenario that helps to identify regional measures and strategies in the transport and logistics sector.
The “Mediterranean transport and logistics in a post-COVID 19 era: prospects and opportunities” initiative is led by Centre for Western Mediterranean Transportation Studies (CETMO) and European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed). Several of the region’s remarkable organisations play an important role in this initiative.
