DIVERSIFOOD Newsletter #2
One year of food diversity
DIVERSIFOOD celebrated its first birthday! Started in March 2015, the project has now reached its first objectives to promote food diversity and quality in an innovative way.
It was an intense year. Meetings, public events, trainings, field experiments: all these actions were organized with the overall goal of enriching the diversity of cultivated plants through a multi-actor approach.
What is DIVERSIFOOD
DIVERSIFOOD, "Embedding crop diversity and networking for local high quality food systems", is an international project funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme for 4 years.
DIVERSIFOOD involves 21 organizations from 12 countries to enrich cultivated biodiversity by testing and promoting underutilized or forgotten crop species.
This is DIVERSIFOOD second newsletter. It aims to inform about the project development and results and will be published twice a year.
