“Support the local sector and improve the territorial dynamics for the benefit of the sustainable economic development of the Kerkennah Islands.”
Jean-Paul Pellissier is Deputy Director of CIHEAM-IAMM, based in Montpelier (France). The Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Montpellier (IAMM) is an international institute for higher education, cooperation and research which contributes to the production of the knowledge and skills essential to train executives in the subjects of agriculture, food and sustainable rural development in the Mediterranean and the development of the countries surrounding the Mediterranean. It depends on the International Center for Advanced Agronomic Studies (CIHEAM), an intergovernmental organization.
A veterinarian by training, Mr. Pellissier has devoted a good part of his career to international cooperation, to the development of territories in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Mediterranean and to the management of both local and international projects. He therefore has significant experience in the subjects of territorial development, the evaluation of public policies, local animation and the development of economic sectors.
As part of the DEVLOK project, Mr. Pellissier used his know-how to develop “Kerkennah Plastic Free”, an action plan which has established a collaboration between the people of the Kerkennah Islands to manage a local economic resource, plastic.
Convinced of the particular value of the plastic and of its potential for the local sector, Mr. Pellissier knew how to develop the necessary links and collaborations with SEAQUAL INITATIVE to support the local sector and enhance this territorial dynamic for the good of the sustainable economic development of the Kerkennah Islands.
