Participatory Research on Cultivated Biodiversity

Participatory Research on Cultivated Biodiversity

Since 2005, participatory, multi-stakeholder and transdisciplinary research has supported the development of cultivated diversity in organic farming, for quality products, specifically adapted to local contexts and to diverse farming practices. This theme is integrated in european networks involved in the development of diversified food systems, from production to consumption, considering environmental, cultural, social and economic contexts.
