The second Preparatory action is intended to provide stakeholders with concrete examples to valorise the use of neglected breeds and varieties in agriculture in an economically viable way.
Concrete examples have been delivered in two-fold manner:
• Through the implementation of four projects; and
• The compilation of a compendium of projects.
These has led to:
• The development of a user guide for the valorisation of neglected breeds and varieties within the agro-food supply chain for stakeholders; and
• The deployment of a communication campaign including the production of a video clip, a conference to present the results of the preparatory actions and other additional communication tools.
