Agrobiodiversity for improved food security and nutrition
CROPS4HD seeks to improve food security and nutrition of smallholder farmers, especially women, through sustainable use and conservation of farmers’ varieties/landraces, neglected and underutilized species respecting agroecological approaches.
Project activities make traditional crops and varieties more attractive by illustrating their nutritional benefits.
The project supports farmers in improving their cultivation techniques in order to achieve good yields.
The goal is to strengthen farmers’ seed systems and protecting farmers’ rights to propagate, exchange and sell their seeds.
