Cultivating diversity and food quality: Proceedings now available!
How to better embed crop diversity for resilient sustainable food systems? On April 11th, the DIVERSIFOOD Forum with policy makers and stakeholders addressed this and other fundamental questions to promote cultivated biodiversity.
The event was hosted by the European Committee of the Regions in Brussels and involved different stakeholders: from policy makers to researchers, from NGOs to Farmer Organisations and Value chain actors.
DIVERSIFOOD project results and key lessons were shared, such as new approaches for cultivated biodiversity management, for plant breeding for sustainable farming systems, and new relationships among actors of the food systems.
During the event the dialogue among participants was promoted, sharing knowledge and collecting feedbacks in order to further develop current policies for cultivating diversity and food quality.
