This article analyzes the contemporary agricultural policies in Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco. The article describes the agricultural policies of these North African countries and explains their developments and objectives in recent decades. We also examined the positive and negative results obtained in terms of modernization of the agricultural sector, increase in production and productivity, as well as its adaptation to a new context of increasing globalization and international market liberalization of agricultural products in the frame of the WTO and the agreements with the European Union. Food security appears as a fundamental objective of the agricultural policies of these Maghreb countries. In this sense, the article analyzes the different instruments and measures on supply and demand that these countries have implemented, with positive results in some cases but without reaching the target in others. © UNISCI, 2013.

International community is increasingly concerned with climate change. Over time, perceptions on this issue have changed, up to the current thread of thought which considers it one of the greatest risks for international security. The Mediterranean region in general, and in particular the Maghreb, is one of the most vulnerable geographic areas to climate change and its consequences. The regional characteristics, both human and physical, as well as the presence of hard-solving regional conflicts, aggravate climate change impacts, increase uncertainties and foster other risks and threats. © UNISCI, 2015.
